The 2023 Victorian LGBTIQ+ Leadership Program is now accepting applications

The LGBTIQ+ Leadership Program is a flagship Victorian Government initiative designed to build the skills and networks of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse, intersex and queer leaders, in a safe and supported environment.
6 February 2023

In 2023 the program has been designed and delivered for a regional and rural cohort. The 2023 program is all about community-led action and helping LGBTIQ+ leaders in regional and rural Victoria gain the skills they need to drive change in their local areas.

The LGBTIQ+ Leadership Program is a flagship initiative of our Pride in our future: Victoria’s LGBTIQ+ strategy 2022-32.

Importantly, the program has been co-designed with LGBTIQ+ communities, for LGBTIQ+ communities. A Program Reference Group, comprised of regional and rural LGBTIQ+ leaders, program alumni and subject-matter experts will ensure the program design and delivery is responsive to the unique needs and challenges of regional and rural LGBTIQ+ leaders.

To be eligible to apply, applicants must identify as LGBTIQ+, currently reside in regional or rural Victoria, be 18 years and older, and be active community leaders.

Applications are now open and close on Monday 13 March 2023.
