Company Directors Course for Indigenous Business Leaders

Perpetual, the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) and Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF) are pleased to make 17 scholarships available for Indigenous leaders to attend the AICD's Company Directors Course for Indigenous Business Leaders in Perth in June 2021.

These scholarships are focused exclusively on supporting Indigenous communities and will be funded by the Fred P Archer Charitable Trust (managed by Perpetual) and the AICD, administered by the ASF and delivered by the AICD.

ASF’s CEO, Sam Sayers, says, “We are delighted to be able to support indigenous leaders to access governance education...These scholarships provide opportunities that may otherwise be difficult for Indigenous communities to access, and we see first-hand the benefits that governance training brings to recipients and their organisations.”

Together, ASF, AICD and Perpetual are offering a combination of full and partial scholarships (valued at up to $7,600 each) to enable Indigenous leaders Australia-wide to develop their skills by exploring the director’s role and responsibilities. Throughout the program, leaders will build upon their governance capabilities and affect positive and long-lasting impact for their organisations.

Applications are now open to new or experienced directors, public officials and senior executives reporting to a board who need to understand governance issues in depth.
