Scholarships for NFP Participants in Sydney Leadership
Thursday, 3rd October 2013 at 10:33 am

Leaders and emerging leaders in the community and not-for-profit sector are invited to apply for a scholarship to participate in one of Australia’s most highly regarded leadership development programs in 2014.

Now in its 15th year, the Sydney Leadership program has a well-earned reputation as one of the most authentic, credible and ground-breaking leadership programs in Australia.

Each year it brings together a group of 30 leaders and emerging leaders from across the business, government and not-for-profit sectors to develop their skills to lead change with positive social impact.

The program, run by The Benevolent Society’s centre for leadership development, Social Leadership Australia, offers a powerful learning experience with both immediate and long lasting impacts. Selection is competitive, but anyone with a real interest is encouraged to apply.

“This is an invitation for people with both the desire and the potential to make a real difference in their work,” Geoff Aigner, Director of Social Leadership Australia said.

“Sydney Leadership will help you align with your deepest sense of purpose. It will challenge you, inspire you and change you. But most of all, it will help you develop the skills  you need to lead meaning change on the complex issues you care most about, using an approach which is both powerful and proven,” Aigner said.

As with all Social Leadership Australia programs, Sydney Leadership uses the Harvard Adaptive Leadership model but it takes the learning to a new level by teaching in challenging, ‘real-world’ settings.

Sydney Leadership strengthened my professional and personal capabilities to work towards social change. I have a much greater understanding of what is required of real leadership and now have the knowledge of a system and process to assist me in my day to day professional and personal life.” – Carol Vale, former Manager, Major Initiatives and Policy, Aboriginal Education & Training

In addition to the general category of scholarships for Not for Profit and community sector leaders, scholarships are also on offer to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders; leaders in the medical field; in ageing, disability and home care; and education.

Applications for Sydney Leadership 2014 close 18 October 2013. More information about the program and the scholarships is available at www.benevolent.org.au/leadership or contact the program manager, Julie Ahern on 02 8262 3585 or julie.ahern@benevolent.org.au.
