LEAD program

What is LEAD?

LEAD (LEAD, ENGAGE, ASPIRE, DEVELOP) is a SSAF funded leadership program for all current students of Western.

As a member of LEAD, you can choose to attend conferences, industry networking opportunities, fortnightly workshops and online modules. Presented by a mix of alumni, industry professionals and the University.

Select the events and skills that YOU want to develop and build for YOUR future!

Not only will it enhance your personal and professional development to be a globally aware leader, each learning element is recognised, which is an asset in building your resume and impressing employers.

LEAD is exclusively for engaged and motivated students. Participation in the program and access to LEAD events and opportunities is by competitive application only, as program spaces are limited.
