Our Approach

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
