Group Leadership circles
Sponsorship programs: The Vice Chancellors Sponsorship program for CALD and Aboriginal and Torres Strait s Island women at University of Sydney
Coaching and mentoring circles provide safe and confidential spaces for women to learn & grow. Of particular benefit to women who work in male dominated workplaces, they create a momentum for action and learning well beyond the formal boundaries of more traditional development initiatives.
Circles empower women through the delivery of both theory and practice:
- Current leadership, resilience and career management theory
- The opportunity to share, discuss and learn from each other under the guidance of the professional coach facilitator.
During the meetings, each participant has her own ‘airtime’ to present real time issues or challenges and to receive coaching suggestions from the rest of the group.
Clients include The University of Sydney, Department of Defence, Department of Home Affairs, Commonwealth Banking Corporation, Department of Defence Science and Technology as well as women in IT from across 30 government agencies and departments
We run a number of training programs that respond to the challenges faced by women on their leadership journey. We actively encourage interaction, allowing attendees to connect deeply and purposefully and building a culture of women supporting women.
Based on our extensive research and experience working with many talented women, we have developed a suite of professional development programs that focus on building effective personal leadership capabilities that help lead to career advancement and life fulfillment.
We work with organisations to help identify the systemic changes required to build diversity and to optimise the performance of employees from differing backgrounds. We do this through a range of consulting services and tailored programs.

Non-Profit Australia Executive Mentoring
Orijen developed the Non-Profit Australia’s Executive Mentoring Service to enable non-profit leaders and senior executives to access executive mentoring. The service was designed to support non- profit organisations by providing their executives with a mentor with extensive experience in business. Orijen sourced, selected and matched the non-profit leaders with some of Australia’s top executives and Executive Directors who openly shared their knowledge and experience over a period of 12 months.
Sydney University Vice Chancellors Sponsorship Program for Cultural and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Women.
Orijen designed and delivered the University-wide program to support CALD female staff who possess the potential to move into senior executive roles at the University of Sydney – from both academic and professional positions.
The program aimed to foster sponsorship relationships between high potential CALD female staff, senior advocates and the University’s Senior Executive Group with the primary objectives being to accelerate CALD female staff careers and bolster leadership success at the University.
