Whittlesea Women: Leading in Diversity

The New and Emerging Communities Leadership Program (NECLP) provides an outstanding opportunity for potential and current leaders from new and emerging communities across Victoria to build their leadership skills and capacity - to contribute to community development.

Funded by the Victorian Government, this leadership program is offered free for up to 30 women leaders from new and emerging communities in Melbourne's northern suburbs, and nearby regional municipalities.

 

About the Program

The program features guest speakers, interactive activities and networking opportunities and provides a leadership development experience with long-lasting benefits for participants and the community.

Past graduates of the NECLP have arrived to Australia from over thirty different countries, and all are committed to making a difference in new communities (e.g. could include Afghanistan, South Sudan, Nepal, Pacific Islands, Iraq). The group includes people with different experience and backgrounds including refugees, skilled migrants, students and community members.

 

Program Outcomes

  • Build your leadership skills, capacity and confidence 
  • Grow your networks in government, business and community sectors
  • Make the most of your leadership journey with a diverse group of female leaders committed to making a difference
