2018 LGBTI Leadership Program

Leadership Victoria is delighted to be partnering with the Victorian Government to deliver the LGBTI Leadership Program.

The tailored LGBTI Leadership Program will provide a welcoming environment to explore what it means to be a LGBTI leader today and gain useful leadership skills to enable change in your communities.


You will be empowered through an increased understanding of your own leadership abilities, LGBTI history, achievements of LGBTI elders and the strategies and resilience of LGBTI communities.

The LGBTI 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 2018 LGBTI Leadership Program will gather a diverse range of LGBTI people together.

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