|Indigenous Women’s Leadership Program|
In March 2009 NCOSS invited applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) women who were interested in participating in a leadership development program. This was an initiative of NCOSS, in partnership with Tranby Aboriginal College. The program was funded by the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet and administered by the Department of Community Services.
This was a rare opportunity for NGOs to develop the leadership skills and capacity of ATSI women working in either paid or voluntary roles in their organisation.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women working in the not-for-profit community services sector (NGO) – either as Managers/Co-ordinators or on the Boards of Management of community service NGOs. The pilot program opened to women within the Sydney region. Applicants needed to be able to attend the full 12 days of the program and there was no cost associated with participating in the program.
