The organisations are launching the Directing Change Scholarship offering 15 full-fee scholarships for people with disability to undertake either the Foundations of Directorship program or the Company Directors Course at AICD.  

The scholarship also includes eight months of mentoring with an Australian business leader to help participants maximise their board career opportunities.

Leaders with disability can apply from January 17 to February 13, 2022 via the Australian Network on Disability website.

Australian Network on Disability CEO, Corene Strauss said there is a talented cohort of people who are, often unintentionally, overlooked due to physical and systematic barriers. “Our role is to help businesses identify and eliminate these barriers to provide equity across all levels of business.”

According to AICD CEO Angus Armour: “We are proud to partner with Australian Network on Disability to provide a scholarship to people with disability who are looking to expand their skills and experience into the executive and board level.”
