Develop, support, promote disability leaders

Boards and Committees project

Increasing the number of Victorians with disabilities on Victorian government boards or committees.

The Disability Leadership Institute is part of a larger project aimed at increasing the number of disabled people on Victorian government boards and committees.

In 2019-20 we will be:

  • developing resources to help get your board resume right
  • sending out regular bulletins to DLI members listing current board/committee opportunities
  • holding Masterclasses for government staff who are recruiting for boards/committees
  • supporting new members of the Victorian Disability Advisory Council.
