Lead­ers of the fu­ture

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Redcliffe Manning -

SOUTHCARE’S new­est young lead­ers were ac­cepted into the Emerg­ing Young Lead­ers Pro­gram last week.

The col­lab­o­ra­tive pro­gram draws to­gether not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions and tal­ented young pro­fes­sion­als to cre­ate di­ver­sity on aged care and com­mu­nity boards.

The launch kicked off an in­ten­sive pro­gram, which in­cludes lead­er­ship and in­dus­try train­ing, men­tor as­sis­tance, panel dis­cus­sions, board ob­ser­va­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties, site vis­its and team projects.

The City of South Perth is a Com­mu­nity Part­ner of the pro­gram and Mayor Sue Do­herty said she was pleased the City had em­braced the op­por­tu­nity to be­come a Com­mu­nity Part­ner of the pro­gram.

“It is an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity for young pro­fes­sion­als to use, trans­fer and de­velop new skills to make a dy­namic dif­fer­ence within board gov­er­nance in the aged care and not-for-profit sec­tors,” she said.
