Minister for Sport The Hon Peter Dutton MP and the Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Women The Hon Michaelia Cash, announced the opening of the 2014-15 grant round through a media release, to highlight the contribution of women in sport.

Individuals can apply for up to $5,000 and Organisations can apply for up to $10,000 to undertake training in the areas of coaching, communications, media and marketing, governance, management and administration, and officiating.
To be eligible for a grant, individuals must be involved in a paid or volunteer capacity at a local, state or national level in the sport industry for the duration of the project, and both individuals and organisations must be supported by a sporting organisation that is affiliated with a National Sporting Organisation (NSO) recognised by the ASC.

Based on positive experiences with the “Leaders for Tomorrow” (LFT) program, interest was expressed by the LFT graduates and supporters to expand on what they had achieved and create an organisation that would foster leadership aspirations. And so, Diverse Leadership Inc was established and incorporated in August of 2014.
The purpose of Diverse Leadership Inc is to develop the capacity of people with disability to act as leaders in business, government, community or wherever their interests lie.
Diverse Leadership Inc (DLI) has been funded by Developmental Disability WA (DDWA) under a Family Leadership Grant to raise family awareness about the diverse and rewarding lives that people with disability experience and the different ways family members have supported this.
People with lived experience of disability are required as presenters.
The role requires each presenter to:
Attend a Professional Development session with E-QUAL, covering presentation content and group facilitation skills, on Tuesday 21st October, 1-4pm.
Develop a presentation (with some guidance) about their life experiences and how their family have supported them to lead the life they have chosen.
Attend a Professional Development session with Peter Dhu, public speaking trainer, on delivering their presentation, on Thursday 30th October, 1- 4.30pm.
Deliver at least two sessions together with another presenter or as part of a panel (between November-March).
Liaise with fellow presenters as needed for each session.
Liaise with E-QUAL about session times and locations as required.
Invoice E-QUAL at the conclusion of each delivery ($200 per session, ABN not required).
Organise transport and support as required (some funding available for transport and interpreters).
Participate in a debriefing/follow up meeting after all of the sessions have been completed.
If you would like to be considered for this role, please send your details and some relevant background information to Jane Hannay by October 3rd to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9389 9930 for further information.
