The Vincent Fairfax Fellowship provides leaders with the conviction, skill and knowledge to be ethical and effective leaders. Fellows learn to be architects of ethical cultures, agents of moral progress and positive role models, operating in a community of like-minded leaders with a shared vision and commitment to the common good.
Across a year-long program of in-person retreats, online learning programs, reflective practice and peer-coaching, participants explore and untangle the moral challenges that arise in their high-level leadership positions. Fellows work in collaborative, diverse teams to develop an ethical change project to be road-tested and implemented within their organisation, sector or industry to drive ongoing ethical change. The close-knit, collegial and confidential environment becomes an ethical brains trust – a group that can be drawn on as confidants, advisors, supporters and collaborators in the often challenging, lonely work of driving ethical change.
The Fellowship involves two residential retreats based in Victoria and NSW, group and individual online learning and team-based meetups throughout the year. There are scholarship places available specifically for leaders from the not-for-profit, arts and culture, start-up and community sectors.
