  1. New publication: Westpac Social Change Fellowship Report

    Following a year of interviews, meetings, conferences, speeches and study, our CEO/Founder Christina Ryan has released a report about her 2017 Westpac Social Change Fellowship. The report examines the status of disability leadership, identifies what it is, and proposes the identification of an entire new field of study and development.

    Its time to change the way leadership is understood.

  2. 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.

  4. Team Leading Disability Masterclass

    As part of her Westpac Social Change Fellowship our Founder, Christina Ryan, has been talking diversity practice with many leading government agencies and companies. Its becoming clear that we are relying on good intentions to grow and sustain our disability workforce rather than skilling up the implementers.

    Good intentions are great but good outcomes are better!

    Grow your disability workforce and know that the people you are relying on to implement that change are skilled up for whats needed.

    This Masterclass is designed for team leaders and supervisors of staff with disabilities, the ones who are at the coalface of diversity policy implementation. Groups will be kept small to ensure strong engagement. All participants receive a bonus one on one coaching session. This Masterclass is vital if you want to improve your diversity outcomes.
