Wimmera Southern Mallee Development provides leadership opportunities for current and emerging leaders in our region.

Leadership Wimmera – Changemaker’s Program

Leadership Wimmera’s mission is to stimulate, facilitate and sustain leadership in the region.

The Changemaker’s Program is a program for existing leaders – those who own or run a business and/or who lead a team at work or in their community life and who have demonstrated potential to commit to greater leadership involvement in their workplace or community.

  • These graduates continue to utilise the important life and leadership skills they have learned in their roles as business owners, managers, employees, volunteers, parents, friends and community members.
  • Employers who have sponsored their staff to participate in Leadership Wimmera programs – including year-long intensive programs and shorter-term opportunities to learn new skills – have observed improvements in the individuals’ confidence, performance and willingness to take on greater responsibilities.
  • Many graduates have stepped up to more senior positions in their workplace, taken on roles of responsibility in the community and sought ways to contribute to the future of the Wimmera Southern Mallee.
  • More than 600 people to grow and thrive and contribute positively to the Wimmera Southern Mallee community since 2002.

We thank ACE Radio for its generous contribution to the program.
