Scholarships for Regional Leaders with a Disability
Thursday 15th February 2018
If you have a disability and want to develop your leadership skills to the next level, then the free leadership development program offered by the Disability Leadership Institute might be of interest.
Leader of The Nationals and Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh MP is encouraging emerging and established disability leaders across the electorate to submit an expression of interest in one or both of the fully funded scholarships on offer from the Disability Leadership Institute.
“I am conscious that our disability employment rankings have remained largely unchanged for several decades. People with a disability continue to struggle to obtain employment and the numbers of disability leaders remains static.”
Mr Walsh said the Disability Leadership Institute courses are targeting rural and regional Victorians and all elements can be undertaken from your home without travel.
‘I am hoping that this will create strong local interest,” he said.
The Disability Leadership Institute is helping to change the way leadership is understood because it recognises that disability leadership is a specific discipline that requires its own specialised methods of development and nurturing
The Building Disability Leaders project is funded by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services as part of its transition to NDIS.
