Governance Foundations for NFP Directors, AICD (2022)

Obtaining a scholarship from the Australian Scholarships Foundation for the Foundations of not-for-profit directorship course has had such a huge impact, personally and professionally. I thoroughly enjoyed the learning experiences that were curated, with case-based learning and discussions, as well as facilitating a new network of people within the not-for-profit sector. This scholarship and course have given me and the organisations I work with such a boost, allowing us to consolidate and solidify the governance structures and processes, for the best interest of all stakeholders.
