Cohort One: SILA program participants

Social Impact Leadership Australia (SILA) is a ground-breaking national capacity building and leadership program designed specifically for current leaders of Australian for-purpose organisations. This program is being delivered by the Centre for Social Impact, a world leader in social impact education.  

The program’s funders, The Myer Foundation and Sidney Myer Fund, the Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation and the Paul Ramsay Foundation are united in their vision to unlock potential and improve the wellbeing of Australians through their charitable giving and philanthropic endeavours. 

The 21st century will be the century of the social sector organisation. The more economy, money, and information become global, the more community will matter. The leadership, competence, and management of the social sector … will thus largely determine the values, the vision, the cohesion, and the performance of the 21st century society.
