April 30 Event – Leading in Community in the 21st Century

With Chris Kotur, Leadership Victoria’s Leader in Residence

Rotary Club of Melbourne and Leadership Victoria are proud to host Chris Kotur for this informative and challenging evening.

Chris is Leadership Victoria’s Leader-in-Residence and an alumnus of the acclaimed Williamson Community Leadership Program. Chris’ experience includes multiple senior Government and Academic roles, supporting two Royal Commissions, multiple fire and flood enquiries, and leadership across an extraordinary spectrum of other organisations and causes.

Chris will share her insights and lead a discussion exploring the emerging challenges of modern leadership. Not just in “community” in a local sense, but how to lead strategically for all Australians: in business, government or civic spheres.

This event is intended for LV alumni and graduates, RCM members and others interested in community leadership. Offered in partnership with Rotary Club of Melbourne for the shared vision of leading for a better world.

Join Leadership Victoria Mentors and Associates at the Gandhi Digital Exhibition for an exploration of Gandhian leadership principles forged during MK Gandhi’s 21 year period in South Africa, as a lawyer and civic leader opposing the oppressive conditions of indentured labour in the colony.  

Of MK Gandhi’s leadership transformation in these 21 years, Nelson Mandela said: You gave us Mohandas; we returned him to you as Mahatma Gandhi.

(Mahatma means “great soul”)

Gandhian leadership principles have enduring influence and impact on world leaders from Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela to the present day. 

Register to join the Introductory floor talk by Sadhna Jithoo, an LV mentor and presenter. Her family lived in the diaspora with the Gandhi family for over 4 generations, maintaining a close relationship today with Dr Ela Gandhi, international peace activist and granddaughter of Mahatma Gandhi.

Do you have Board experience and a willingness to share skills, knowledge and expertise with other women? Can you act as a positive role model for others?

Do you have time for a coffee or a drink once a month?

At LV we believe that Mentors can play a really significant role in the learning development of our program participants.

Getting more Women on Boards has been identified as critical aspect of gender equality and ensuring we have more women in senior leadership positions.

Supporting this work by actively mentoring someone else to be a successful and valued Board member is a way you can help lift others up as we strive to ‘smash the glass ceiling’.

Ideally you can provide guidance and constructive feedback that will assist other women on their leadership journey. Overall good mentoring requires empowering the mentee to develop their own strengths, beliefs, and personal attributes.

Why do we need Board mentors? What is the gap? 

·         Less than 1 in 10 Exec positions are held by women in  ASX500 companies

·         Today, only 7 of the top 200 companies have women CEO’s

·         56.5% of ASX 500 companies have NO women on their Boards at all

·         The gender pay gap has remained stuck at 17% for 30 years
