As champions of diversity, ICDA is focused on providing leadership opportunities to the most underrepresented sectors of the community. As part of this endeavour, in partnership with organisations who share our vision, during 2019 we are offering up to 500 governance scholarships of $1000 towards the Diploma of Business (Governance).
This new round, in partnership with the Women's Leadership Institute Australia (WLIA), is focused on women.
WLIA exists to catalyse and inspire innovative partnerships, action and system-changing solutions to address the imbalance of women in leadership positions in Australia.
WLIA is bold in its desires to achieve gender balanced representation in Australia and know that Australian women are also bold in their desires to harness their capabilities into leadership roles.
It is dedicated to breaking through the barriers of unconscious bias, cultural and structural issues in Australia to ensure equality of opportunity for women to attain leadership positions.
