This October we welcomed 15 Future Leaders from around Australia for a residential workshop in Sydney. Attendees included Alex C, Ally F, Andrew C, Anita R, Elliott M, Haley R, Jen H, Kirk C, Lisa G, Lydia D, Tammy M, Trudi Anne G, Yogie W and Zoe M.
Each participant had recently completed a series of online modules, and the workshop was an opportunity to refine their leadership goals and plans by meeting face-to-face with established leaders in the autism community. The workshop also facilitated peer-to-peer engagement and networking.
Autism CRC's Sylvia Rodger Academy is proud to partnering with Aspect to deliver the 2019 Future Leaders Program. The Future Leaders Program is Australia’s first holistic leadership capacity-building program for autistic adults. Co-designed and delivered by autistic adults, the Future Leaders Program is designed to empower autistic adults with leadership potential to make a positive impact in their communities.
Over the coming months, the participants will put into practice their learnings from the online modules and workshop through a mentored practical experience in a real-world setting.
