Social Impact

GivinBalloong back to the community

We are the catalyst for change. We transform leaders into influencers who inspire and motivate others to achieve great things. Our immersive programs instil courage, skills and tenacity in our leaders, giving them the powerful potential to lead transformational social change.

Our alumni are renowned for bringing about positive change in their organisations, their local and global communities. They have the capacity to set the standard in addressing social challenges.

Leadership WA’s alumni provides pro-bono work worth approximately $4 million to the WA community and not-for-profit organisations each year. Our growing alumni from a wide range of professional disciplines and sectors have contributed their time, advice and leadership to diverse projects across WA.

This has largely been facilitated through Skillsbank. Research has shown that for every one hour of Skillsbank volunteer work contributed, our alumni provides an additional 7 hours of their own chosen community work.

The Leadership WA Foundation was established in 2014 to further enhance social impact. The Foundation aims to build the capacity of not-for-profit and community organisations and their positive impact upon the lives of those with whom they work. Learn more about the Foundation and how you can contribute.

Our Rising Leadership Program participants also contribute through focused community projects, as part of their immersive development experience.
