Announcing the Building Disability Leaders project

The Disability Leadership Institute is very excited to announce the Building Disability Leaders project.


Building Disability Leaders targets leaders with disabilities in rural or regional Victoria to develop their current leadership to the next level. The project offers two different packages to recipients and one or both can be selected:


  1. DLI premium membership and individual leadership coaching package, and/or
  2. Registration in our major online course Represent (delivered over 6 weeks in May/June 2018).


The selection process for scholarship recipients is ongoing and will close once all places are filled. Expressions of interest in obtaining a scholarship, for one or both options, should be made via the DLI website.


This project is undertaken fully online, so leaders are not required to travel or source funds to participate.


We encourage you to share this opportunity with your networks. If you have any questions or require further information, please contact us.


This project is funded by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services as part of its transition to NDIS.
