McKinsey Executive Leadership Program, McKinsey & Company (2022)

Having support from the Australian Scholarships Foundation to participate in the McKinsey Executive Leadership Program (ELP) was fantastic, I would not have been able to attend otherwise. As an NFP participant, ELP was a great opportunity to engage with leaders outside of the sector, helping gain a different perspective and share insights. It is easy to get caught up in the NFP world, so to be able to spend time learning and meeting executives from other sectors was invaluable. I would highly recommend others in the NFP sector to apply for this opportunity through the Australian Scholarships Foundation.
