This is the third year of CAFBA’s Women in Leadership Scholarship program, and we are very pleased to announce that CAFBA has awarded fifteen (15) scholarships for female CAFBA members and their staff for programs run by the Australian School of Applied Management in 2018. This has been a tremendous response, and recognises the value and prestige of these courses.
The courses are funded partly through government grants, and partly through the generous support of our Affiliate members. These courses will not only be of benefit to these very worthwhile candidates but to our industry as whole.
We are delighted to advise the successful scholarship recipients for 2018 are:

Katrina Kelly – Leaselink Business Finance Pty Ltd
Chelsea Barker – Atlas Equipment Finance Pty Ltd
Kristina Alexopoulos – Moody Kiddell & Partners
Christine Schwugier – Magnolia Lane Financial Services

Nabila Czerney – Mood Kiddell & Partners

This is a great outcome and demonstrates CAFBA’s commitment to addressing the gender imbalance in our industry, and also tapping into the tremendous talent pool we already have within our member firms. As one of the recipients said last year, she “has not felt this supported in any other industry she has worked”.
Congratulations to all the scholarship recipients, and we wish them every success.
