It is with great pleasure that we unveil the John Monash Foundation Leadership Academy. This initiative will ensure that John Monash Scholars are supported in an ongoing and powerful way, as they work to shape a better future for our nation and the world. Events and activities that will be offered through the Leadership Academy will provide networking, mentoring and opportunities for collaboration between Scholars, as well as external industries and organisations. Through the soon to be released digital Publications Library and Find an Expert database, we will have the Leadership Academy fully operational, providing local and global communities easy access to the breadth of knowledge and expertise available from the formidably talented John Monash Scholars.
Our Leadership Academy will be governed by a dynamic and prestigious Advisory Board, committed to fostering the leadership capabilities of our John Monash Scholars. We are also very proud to have the support of our Leadership Academy Patron, the Honourable Julia Gillard AC.
Our Advisory Board is comprised of:
Professor Sir Edward Byrne AC – Chair
Lee Liberman – Deputy Chair, General Sir John Monash Foundation Board
Professor Paul Wellings CBE – Director, General Sir John Monash Foundation Board
Robert Cameron AO – Corporate Non-Executive Director
Karen Wood – Corporate Non-Executive Director
Dr Thomas Hanna – 2004 John Monash Scholar
May Samali – 2014 NSW Premier's John Monash Scholar
A Message from our Patron – The Honourable Julia Gillard AC:
"As a strong believer in the importance of positive role models in leadership and global perspectives, I am certain this Academy will utilise the knowledge and diversity found amongst the motivated and talented John Monash Scholars. Facilitating opportunities for collaboration between industry and academics and fostering the leadership capabilities of these Scholars, will ensure their voice is projected in a powerful way to shape a better future for our nation and the world."
We are inviting our entire John Monash community to get behind our Leadership Academy and become involved in this next important development for the General Sir John Monash Foundation and all our Scholars.
