Rises’s Youth Manager is honoured to be accepted to a young leaders program in WA.

Dawn McAleenan received a scholarship for the program recently.

Young Leaders program

The 2018 Emerging Leaders In Governance Program (ELGP) develops young professionals for Board leadership in the aged care and community sector.

The group will learn about board governance, sector knowledge and team work from an experienced leadership developer.

There were 20 people chosen to take part in 2018. Their careers vary widely from physiotherapy to insurance and engineering.

Dawn said she was honoured to be selected.

I am looking forward to learning more board governance and leadership in the sector, and working with people from lots of different backgrounds. I hope to build my knowledge and use these new skills to support Rise.

The program was launched with a breakfast on 7th February. We’re proud of you, Dawn!

We are also proud to be a community partner for this program.
