To foster greater diversity of thought and lived experience in leadership positions, the 2020 scholarships will be focused on supporting development opportunities for:
- regional employees through People matters training
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees and people with disability to complete PSMP.
All scholarships are offered on a one-for-one basis, with agencies funding one paid registration per scholarship placement. Applications will be coordinated directly with partner organisations through chief HR officers.
