Indigenous Leadership Scholarships Announced
Wednesday, 10th October 2012 at 9:56 am

Two scholarships for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander leaders to participate in the recently announced 2013 Sydney leadership program have been made available.

The scholarships are worth a reported $16,5000 each and are being offered by Social Leadership Australia – the leadership development centre at The Benevolent Society.

The Benevolent Society says the scholarships will be awarded to Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander leaders working in the NGO sector or in a significant community leadership role whose work, either directly or indirectly, is driving positive social change.

The Sydney Leadership program is an annual, eight-month program that brings together 30 leaders from the business, Not for Profit and government sectors.

The Benevolent Society says that the program’s aim is to foster new leadership skills and a new determination to create positive social change.

Director of Social Leadership Australia, Geoff Aigner, said: “Sydney Leadership is building a coalition of people across Australian business, government and not-for-profit sectors with the skills and determination to make a lasting, positive impact in the community.”

“Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander representation is an important part of this work. These scholarships represent an opportunity for Indigenous Australian leaders, businesses and communities, to benefit from this powerful program.”

Since 1999, the Sydney Leadership program has brought together more than 400 decision-makers and empowered them to bring about lasting, positive change in their workplace and community.

The Benevolent Society says that the program involves no textbooks or conventional classrooms as it teaches leadership skills in real world settings such as public housing estates, prisons and remote communities.

Applicants have until October 31, 2012 to apply for one of the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander leadership scholarships.
