2019 LGBTIQ Leadership Program

Leadership Victoria is delighted to partner with the Victorian Government to deliver the LGBTIQ Leadership Program.

The tailored LGBTIQ Leadership Program provides a welcoming environment to explore what it means to be a LGBTIQ leader today and develop your leadership skills to drive change in your communities.


 You can register your interest in the next round here.

The LGBTIQ Leadership program is for Victorians (18 years +) who can demonstrate drive, passion and vision to make a contribution to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse and intersex communities.

The 2019 LGBTIQ Leadership Program will gather a diverse range of LGBTIQ people, who will support, challenge and grow together, building networks and friendships that will last long beyond the program. You will be empowered through an increased understanding of your own strengths and leadership abilities, LGBTIQ history and achievements, and the experiences of other LGBTIQ leaders.

The LGBTIQ Leadership Program is being delivered by Leadership Victoria, funded through the Victorian Government’s LGBTIQ Community Grants Program.
