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 being delivered by Leadership Victoria as part of the Victorian Government’s LGBTI Community Grants Program. Successful applicants will have their spot on the program funded as part of the leadership stream of the LGBTI Community Grants Program.

What will the program offer?

The LGBTI leadership program will include specialised LGBTI content across the program. Program content will include:

  • Leadership development and leadership identity sessions
  • LGBTI speakers, case studies and site visits
  • Presenters from diverse backgrounds, industries and sectors
  • Workshops to build skills, such as communication, media and networking
  • Building networks with other LGBTI leaders
  • Reflection

Who should apply?

The LGBTI Leadership Program will help support and strengthen the development of emerging LGBTI leaders recognised for their drive, passion and vision to make a community contribution.

We encourage LGBTI applicants over the age of 18, particularly from:

  • different abilities
  • regional and rural areas
  • multicultural and multifaith communities
  • Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities.

Applications will open this month. More details to be announced.
