Scholarships Open For Aspiring Female NFP Leaders
Friday, 16th June 2017 at 5:05 pm

Female not for profit leaders are being encouraged to apply for one of 14 scholarships that aim to prepare them to accept greater professional challenges.

Behind closed doors (BCD), a national membership for businesswomen and board-ready women, is set to expand its membership following a $102,300 grant from the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s Office for Women.

The funding will be used to provide 14 full scholarships to female leaders in SA, WA, NSW and VIC to join a BCD membership for 12-months of professional development, networking and peer to peer mentoring.

BCD founder and managing director, Donny Walford, said the initiative would allow women seeking access to insights, knowledge, support and high level networks in their journey to executive and board positions, to join a national community of businesswomen.

“The WLDS [Women’s Leadership and Development Strategy] priority of promoting and supporting greater representation of Australian women in leadership and decision making roles is the exact reason BCD was formed almost a decade ago.” Ms Walford said.

“We have an enviable record of success with 57 per cent of our executive members having attained one or more board directorship positions, 56 per cent of these women have also received promotions.”

To date BCD has offered 21 scholarships across four categories, executive assistant, luminaries, entrepreneurs and executives.

The Executive Not for Profit and NGO scholarships offer executive women in the sector the opportunity to further expand and challenge their current leadership and business practices to further enhance the economic, social, cultural and environmental wellbeing of our society.

To be eligible,applicants must be in an executive leadership role and be able to demonstrate an ability to develop and maintain the sustainability, efficiency and effectiveness of a not-for-profit organisation, innovative and progressive leadership, and a high level of integrity and positive value.

An information session will take place in Sydney on 21 June.
