2019 is going to be a big year for community governance.
Early next year, we'll unveil a Festival of Community Directors, a year-long calendar of events celebrating good governance and leadership. The festival will include training, special events, webinars and networking activities.
We also want 2019 to be special for another reason.
As champions of diversity, we have long been focussed on providing leadership opportunities to the most underrepresented sectors of the community. We're dialling up our efforts and, in partnership with the Trawalla Foundation, we are offering up to 500 part-scholarships towards the Diploma of Business (Governance). Our goal is to award these scholarships early in the new year, so that we can spend 2019 upskilling a diverse cohort throughout Australia.
Apply today and be part of a new movement of governance leaders. Help us change the game.
During this round, we are calling for applications from individuals that either represent or champion causes important to the following segments of our communities:
