Mentoring Opportunity for NFP Executives
Thursday, 15th January 2015 at 9:31 am

National mentoring specialist, McCarthy Mentoring, has launched its Executive Not for Profit Mentoring Scholarship for 2015.

The scholarship is designed to assist a leader within the Not for Profit sector progress their career, strengthen their leadership skills, manage organisational challenges and increase the impact of their work in the community.

The scholarship includes participation in a six month Executive Mentoring Program with a mentor external to the winner’s organisation.

“The mentor will be chosen from our suite of well-respected leaders from business, Government and the Not for Profit sector that have not only reached the top of their fields but share our commitment to developing others,” according to scholarship organisers.

“This is a very exciting opportunity for any executive looking to achieve their personal and organisational goals and strengthen their capacity to affect change in the Australian community.”

The scholarship, valued at $7,800, also consists of a facilitated introductory meeting, five two hour meetings throughout the year as well as a formal evaluation at its completion.

The recipient will receive copies of the McCarthy Mentoring guides, research and best practice tools and will be invited to attend networking lunches.

This the the third year the scholarship has been offered, with previous winners including CEO of Playgroups NSW Karen Bevan in 2013 and Brett Macdonald, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Dry July Foundation, in 2014.

McDonald, who won for his work with an annual fundraiser which improves the wellbeing of adults living with cancer, was mentored by Ian Elliott, company director and ex Chair and CEO of advertising firm George Patterson Bates.

“[Dry July] has experienced rapid growth and is expanding into new markets which, while exciting, presents its own challenges. My role is also developing and I believe a mentor with Ian’s experience will provide invaluable support and direction during this time,” McDonald told McCarthy Mentoring upon being awarded the scholarship.

“It’s reassuring to think I have someone outside the business who is in my corner.”

Karen Bevan received the scholarship for her work in advocacy for disadvantaged children and families at UnitingCare, and went on lead the submissions team on the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and served as the Vice President and as a Non Executive Director of the NSW Council of Social Service.

The scholarship is open to a member of an executive team reporting to the CEO or equivalent in any Australian Not for Profit organisation.
