Our acclaimed Diploma of Business (Governance) BSB50715 – Australia’s only accredited qualification for not-for-profit governance – continues to impress, up skill and enrich participants.

In a move to further break through the barriers of unconscious bias, cultural and structural issues that often preclude women from leadership positions, the Women’s Leadership Institute Australia (WLIA) is offering 25 $1000 scholarships for women towards Diploma of Business (Governance) enrolments.

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit and likely impact for the communities served by each recipient.
