Non-Profit Fellowships -Harvard Club of Australia (2019)

As a recipient of the 2019 Harvard Club of Australia not for profit scholarship, I have had the opportunity to significantly advance my ability to embrace strategic opportunities and grow a network of amazing global and local colleagues. I am incredibly grateful to the Ferris family for their support of this initiative. It is not often that not for profit leaders have access to world class executive development such as that offered by the Harvard Business School. I would recommend the program to leaders looking to challenge themselves within an incredibly talented cohort and grow in the confidence necessary to lead social impact into an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous future.
