Leadership Illawarra Program

The Illawarra Connection is proud to partner with Sydney Business School, RDA Illawarra and JCI Illawarra to deliver the Leadership Illawarra Program. The program aims to produce inspired and well-connected people who will strengthen and lead our region into the future.

Participants have the opportunity to visit leading organisations in the Illawarra and engage with leaders in business, industry and the community as part of the 18-month program.

The program is now in its third iteration with the current cohort due to complete mid-2018. Applications for the scholarship in our cohort commencing November 2018 are now closed and applications are under consideration.

Over the course of the program, participants will engage in experiential learning around:

  • Challenges for the Illawarra
  • Governance and Ethics
  • Leadership; and
  • Community Engagement and Social Responsibility.

The Illawarra Connection supports the Program in a number of ways, including providing a scholarship place in the programme.The scholarship has only been made available to a member, or an employee of a member, of The Illawarra Connection.

For 2018, TIC will also partly fund (50%) of a second scholarship, for a TIC member who is self-funding their participation.

In addition, the following scholarships are also available:

University of Wollongong Sydney Business School - Indigenous or Not-for-profit sector applicant
