Pro­gram builds young lead­ers

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - City Of South Perth -

SOUTHCARE in Man­ning will launch its Emerg­ing Young Lead­ers Pro­gram to­mor­row for the third year run­ning.

The pro­gram will wel­come 20 young pro­fes­sion­als from a di­verse range of cor­po­rate, gov­ern­ment and non-profit back­grounds who share a common pas­sion to use their pro­fes­sional skills to con­trib­ute to Board gov­er­nance within the WA aged care and non-profit sec­tor.

This year’s par­tic­i­pants come from a range of pro­fes­sional back­grounds in­clud­ing law, com­merce and fi­nance.

Miguel Gomes, se­nior business an­a­lyst at BGC and 2015 par­tic­i­pant, said he could use his knowl­edge to pro­vide in­sight to a board on per­spec­tives that may not have pre­vi­ously been con­sid­ered.

The pro­gram has a vi­sion to build a world­class aged care and not-for-profit sec­tor steered by strong, pro­fes­sional lead­er­ship which in­cludes skilled, young pro­fes­sion­als.

Southcare chief ex­ec­u­tive and pro­gram di­rec­tor Nicky Howe said new tal­ent must be in­cluded in the business. “We have to be de­ter­mined about di­ver­sity on boards. We can­not leave young peo­ple out,” she said.
