Non Clinical Professional & Leadership Skills Development

Non Clinical Professional & Leadership Skills Development

A wealth of information and great material is shared with the AFMW via our connections with the UN Youth, UN Women, These wonderful organisations provide speaker training seminars, podcast training seminars, advocacy seminars and other non-clinical workshops.

Generally, it is the UN subscribers who have access to these resources. They are usually put together by highly skilled professionals who ‘donate’ their IP, so to speak’ for wider use.

Due to the existing gender inequity and the efforts being made to address this gap. A lot of these resources are ‘gold’ but come in so many emails they are often ‘lost’ or overlooked.

As part of service to Australian medical women, the AFMW will endeavour to share the best of these resources with our membership. Stay tuned as we add additional posts to this page.
