One of the most important functions of the WSLD is to foster and nurture a leadership class in Western Sydney to increase the region’s presence and influence.
To this end, the Dialogue is identifying local champions in business, education, government, arts & sport and community to establish a Leadership Network, engage them in provocative policy discussion and provide the group with information and ammunition to encourage their own advocacy.
VIP Leadership Dinners: We will continue to host executive level boardroom dinners with key Western Sydney influencers to discuss relevant public policy matters.
Education Response Group: We will act as a distribution network for WSU and TAFE NSW using our Leadership Network as a pool of local respondents and agitators on their research, policy and skills training initiatives.
Mentoring Program: We will develop a program that supports our young leaders in the WSU Academy, connecting these aspirational students with influential regional decision-makers.
