Aimed at high performing senior leaders looking to develop their own courageous, powerful, and authentic leadership, Signature brings senior professionals from government, private and not-for profit sectors on a 10-month journey of self-awareness and self-mastery.

With access to the State’s most experienced and insightful leaders, this journey embraces leadership far beyond management thinking.

You will explore leadership through the lens of current and future Western Australian issues and opportunities with peers carefully curated by Leadership WA from a diverse range of sectors, backgrounds and industries, creating a rich learning environment.

As a scholarship recipient I was able to participate in a high-level leadership program that is hard to impossible for arts and culture sector professionals to access.
