Develop, support, promote disability leaders


Programs and Projects

The Disability Leadership Institute has several major programs and projects to support you with your leadership development.

The Future Shapers

Our major 12 month leadership program.

This world first program has been designed and developed by disability leaders for disability leaders. We use vertical leadership principles and embrace disability as a leadership asset.

This rigorous program incorporates mainstream leadership development alongside a strong understanding of what it takes to operate at the highest levels as a disability leader.


Not sure where you can learn to be an effective activist or change maker?

That’s why we’ve developed Represent, a 6 module fully online course in effective activism and change making.

Boards and Committees Project

We’re working with the Victorian Government and other community partners to increase the number of disabled people on Victorian Government boards and committees.

Leadership Coaching

Join our leadership coaching program to step up to the next level, work through a transition point in your career, or to explore your leadership style and practice more fully.
