NPA             ASF

Inaugural recipients of NPA Leadership Hub scholarships

Not-for-profit leaders Shane Nichols (CEO of Good Return), Elizabeth Svoboda (Executive Manager & Company Secretary of NSW Policy Legacy) and Jason Juretic (CEO of Sydney Stepping Stone) have been named the inaugural recipients of the 2018 NPA Leadership Hub scholarships; the first of their kind facilitated through a new partnership between ASF and the NonProfit Alliance.


For the next 12 months, Shane, Elizabeth and Jason will join other not-for-profit leaders on the NPA Leadership Hub program, a vibrant, supportive, learning and mentoring network focused on developing the skills and expertise of senior leadership team members of Australia’s not-for-profit organisations.

The brainchild of NPA co-founders, Carmel Molloy and Kelly Beaumont, the Leadership Hub is not a stand-alone course, but a sustained and long-term peer-to-peer leadership program, that will support the participants each day with their leadership challenges and opportunities.

Molloy says, “…We are delighted to collaborate with ASF to offer this opportunity to some of the amazing social sector leaders based here in NSW. Research shows that one of the most successful ways leaders can improve their performance is by sharing insights and practical advice with peers who grasp their industry’s distinct challenges and complexities.”

ASF's CEO, Sam Sayers, added, ASF is delighted to be able to assist sector leaders to participate in this innovative peer-to-peer mentoring program, to further develop their skills and capacity. The calibre of applicants for our NPA Leadership Hub scholarships has been extremely high, reflecting the quality of leadership we have in the social sector today.

ASF would like to congratulate the recipients and thank those who applied in this round of Leadership Hub scholarships. Stay tuned for another round of NPA Leadership Hub scholarships in the coming months.
