Who we are
Leadership Victoria's purpose is to help make a bright future: we inspire leaders, create networks and drive change. We do this by developing great leaders through world class leadership development activities, and by developing and deploying transformative skilled volunteers to support community organisations and address social, economic and environmental issues.
LV’s Leadership Programs
Leadership Victoria provides a range of leadership development programs for people of varying levels of leadership experience. Four fundamentals of LV’s programs are:
- Cross-sectoral: We bring the public, private and not-for-profit sectors together
- Open-minded: We respect the breadth of societal values that our participants embrace
- Inter-generational: We enable leaders across generations to learn from one another
- Reflective: We encourage deep reflection to increase each participant's awareness of themselves and their place in the world.
Great leadership in every individual, organisation and community.
Exceptional Leadership. Thriving organisations. Positive Social Impact.
In 1989, the directors of the Hugh Williamson Foundation resolved to invest in the next generation of leaders for Victoria and Australia. They established and funded the Williamson Community Leadership Program (WCLP).
Over the years, WCLP became one of Australia’s most sought-after leadership development programs. In 2000, WCLP changed its name to Leadership Victoria as it continued to expand its programming, staffing, funding base and level of public recognition. Leadership Victoria continues to evolve as a leader among leadership organisations but with the original goals from more than 20 years ago still in place – to foster and develop a new generation of leaders.
