Who we share your data with

Leadership WA does collect some data on behalf of other companies/organisations for providing scholarships to applicants. Viewing the scholarship provider’s privacy policy is recommended.


By applying for a Skillsbank opportunity you are agreeing to have the information provided by you in the application form passed on to the organisation that has posted the opportunity. Additionally, we may provide information regarding what program of Leadership WAs you completed.

As an organisation posting an opportunity, LWA will provide all non-contact information to the Alumni. This will include any documents uploaded as they may be pertinent to the decision to apply

We do not sell your information to any third parties and do not share information for mass communication. Any information shared with partners or facilities from Leadership WA will only be done to provide a service and when considered reasonable to do so i.e. food allergies for an event. Any further sharing of data will only be done with consent.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
