Westpac Social Change Fellowship

The Westpac Social Change Fellowship is both empowering and inspiring. Unlike other social innovation programs, we focus on the growth and development of the extraordinary individuals leading social change in Australia.

 

Background

The Westpac Social Change Fellowship gives you the rare chance to focus solely on yourself and your development. The Fellowship gives you the opportunity to go on a 6-month personal development journey, allowing you to really explore your leadership potential. It could literally change your life. From overseas research and travel to development courses and work experience. Westpac’s Foundational Leadership Program means you’ll also get hands-on professional coaching advice to really help you bring your ideas for social innovation to life.

As a Westpac Social Change Fellow, you’ll become part of the Westpac 100 Scholars Network. Lifelong membership to this network gives you access to one of Australia’s most diverse meetings of like-minds. It’s designed to be inspiring, influential and a life-long learning experience.
