Our Approach

Sean Thorpe - ELGP Alumni and Starick Inc Board Member

The following are the fundamental principles of our approach

Diversity
Diversity

We value diversity of age, perspective, business talent, leadership style, geography and culture. We recognise and develop future leaders who represent the broad face of Australia’s demographic, social, community and professional culture.

Experiential Learning
Experiential Learning

Experiential and action learning are core methodologies of the Emerging Leaders Governance Program. We want Young Leaders to understand firsthand the role and dynamics of Boards of Governance; and the real challenges facing the aged care and community sector- as well as to participate in conversations and solutions for them.

Connectivity
Connectivity

We build cross-sector networks of engagement, relationship and nurture between Young Leaders and senior community leaders through dedicated networking, team building, intergenerational leadership events, one-to-one mentoring, social media and alumni networks.

Peer Support1

Graduates of the Emerging Leaders Governance Program are supported by an Alumni Network and senior mentors and contacts they establish during the Program.

Board Opportunities1

Community Partners play a key role in the development and delivery of the Emerging Leaders Governance Program and in mentorship and support of its graduates.
