Disability Leadership Program

Disability Leadership Program – Apply Now

Australian Network on Disability and the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) are partnering again to further the inclusion of people with disability on boards.

This new initiative will see 85 scholarships awarded to leaders with disability.

The scholarships, funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services, will support leaders with disability by providing an opportunity to uplift their governance knowledge.

Scholarship recipients will undertake the Company Directors Course or the Foundations of Directorship course at AICD. Courses are likely to start at the end of November 2022 and run into the next calendar year.

In addition to the course, scholarship holders will receive a complimentary one-year:

  • AICD membership
  • Directorship Opportunities subscription, Australia’s foremost listing platform which provides the widest choices for directorship positions

To help maximise board career opportunities, the program will also work with existing directors to build disability confidence through Leader-to-Leader Conversations facilitated by Australian Network on Disability.

To apply for the Disability Leadership Scholarship visit The Australian Scholarship Foundation (ASF) website; the facilitating partner for the application process.

  • Applications are open now until 27 July 2022.
