Nominations for the annual SACS Not for Profit Leadership Awards have opened to celebrate the sector’s unsung heroes.

The 10th Annual SACS Leadership Awards will recognise the outstanding leadership of individuals in the Victorian State Government and Statutory Authorities, Local Government and the Not For Profit sectors.

The executive recruitment agency SACS says the Awards recognise both established and upcoming leaders who continually make a positive contribution to their organisation, who innovate in their leadership roles, who demonstrate integrity and positive work values as well as contributing to the efficiency and effectiveness of their organisation.

“Many industries recognise the technical achievements of their leaders and instead the SACS Leadership Awards are designed to acknowledge those often-intangible qualities that improve teams and organisations,” SACS Managing Director Andrew Marty said.

“For example previous leaders have been nominated for their integrity, dedication, compassion, dynamism, their willingness to challenge the status quo, for supporting other team members, inspiring those around them, for breaking down barriers between organisational silos and for inspiring loyalty.”

The 2014 Not for Profit winners were:

  • Andrew Ward, Manager YMCA Docklands, YMCA Victoria
  • Sarah Joseph, Director Castan Centre for Human Rights Law at Monash University.

The winners of the six awards will receive a cash prize of $7500 to foster their leadership skills within their organisation. Runners up in each category win a $500 Leadership Victoria voucher.

The Awards are announced at a gala dinner in August at Sofitel Melbourne with guest speaker, Australian of the Year, Rosie Batty.

Nominations close on 13 June for more details or to enter go to:
