Fellowship for Indigenous Leadership
Supporting achievement and vision for a stronger community
The Fellowship for Indigenous Leadership fosters leadership, providing exceptional people with the support they need to achieve their vision for their communities.
The Fellowship invests in recognised leaders and provides opportunities to emerging leaders within Victoria’s Indigenous communities. The value of the investment in building Indigenous leadership is to improve the economic as well as the social and emotional wellbeing of communities.
The Fellowship supports past, present and future Indigenous leaders who are committed to achieving positive change for Indigenous Victorians and strengthening links between all Australians.
The Fellowship for Indigenous Leadership is a sub-fund of the Australian Communities Foundation. You can support the Fellowship by making a donation through the ACF.
Right Way, Wrong Way, Which Way? Webinar – February 2017
Pro Bono Australia, co-branded with Philanthropy Australia, organised a webinar which was hosted by Genevieve Timmons from the Portland House Foundation, and panellists were Belinda Duarte (FIL/Culture is Life) and Peter Aldenhoven (Woor-Dungin/Willum Warrain) titled Right Way, Wrong Way, Which Way?
The focus of discussion was on influencing philanthropy regarding Aboriginal Australia and influencing the broader agenda and the feedback received has been very positive.
We hope that there will be future webinars so please watch this space for notifications of any further sessions.
