Emerging Leaders

The Foundation is delighted to announce the launch of the Menzies Emerging Leaders Fellowship.

In partnership with the Ethics Centre, and now AIME Mentoring and IMAGI-NATION University, this initiative will support Australian's and a global community of young people to deeply engage with ethical challenges and build leadership capability. The collaboration will continue to explore how the artifacts and collateral developed from the project can best support the education sector to deepen this engagement in the school curriculum.

The initiative aims to use cultural probes to support young people’s response to ethical issues. Based on these responses, a selected group of these young people will come together to develop the resources to support a deeper engagement with ethics and consider ways to develop the enquiry and action learning methodology to build insight and ethical capability.
