Leadership WA are offering two regional LeadAbility courses in 2019 as part of an Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) grant.
People with disability as well as private or community organisation members who are passionate about delivering positive outcomes in regional communities, and who wish to lead and generate change, are encouraged to apply.
The six-day course focuses on developing growth through topics such as understanding leadership, effective communication, working with others in teams, planning for the future, citizenship and community.
Course graduates have joined the workforce, become board members in various organisations, taken on advocacy roles, gained self-confidence and are motivated to make positive changes in their community.
“LeadAbility helped to clarify my vision and find my voice when it came to what I actually wanted to do,” one course graduate said.
The course in Albany starts on 21 February and the course in Karratha begins on 6 June.

Disability Services Minister Stephen Dawson recently visited Leadership WA and said that the State Government was proud to “support Leadership WA in its efforts to empower Western Australians living with disability and those working in the sector”.
He also said the course offered “a fantastic opportunity for people with disability to not only participate more fully in the community but take a leadership role in it”.
