bankmecu recently announced the first of a number of indigenous scholarships with Community Leadership programs.
The first scholarship has been awarded to Kate Booth, Koori Engagement Support Officer with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development who will be participating in the 2012 Loddon Murray Community Leadership Program. Julie Slater, Executive Officer of Community Leadership Loddon Murray, was excited to announce that ‘Ms Booth is the first indigenous person from Bendigo to attend the leadership program in the 13 years of the programs existence’. Kate was selected by the Bendigo and District Aboriginal Co-op because of her leadership potential and her work in the indigenous community.
Community leadership programs aim to develop and connecting future leaders in order that they can enhance their community’s resilience. This indigenous scholarship was funded by bankmecu's Community Investment Program and extends our relationship with the Community Leadership Program Loddon Murray which is a valued bankmecu customer who shares our strong commitment to reconciliation.
