Women & Leadership Scholarships 2021 Recipients Announced

Monday 25, Jan 2021

We are very excited to announce the recipients of the Women & Leadership Australia scholarships for 2021. This is the 6th year CAFBA has supported this program, and we have now awarded over 60 scholarships, which is a continuation of our support for women in our industry to help them unlock their full potential, and become future leaders. All previous recipients of these scholarships have commented how beneficial they have been, and in many ways changed their lives, both in the workplace and personally. Many member firms who have had employees undertake these courses have also commented on the benefits of the courses, with increased confidence, motivation and productivity being key outcomes.

Scholarships were awarded in the Leading Edge Program, the Women’s Executive Ready Program and the Advanced Leadership Program. All courses are arranged through Women and Leadership Australia and conducted through the Australian School of Applied Management. The courses are funded partly through government grants, with the balance being generously sponsored by some of our Affiliate members and CAFBA who are committed to addressing this industry imbalance.

The recipients are:

Leading Edge Program

  • Rebecca Hartley – Magnolia Lane Financial

  • Michelle Towt – Allbiz Finance Brokers

Executive Ready Program

  • Denise Jackson – A Class Business Finance

  • Gayathri Iyer – Magnolia Lane Financial

  • Marie Boyagi – Get Capital  

Advanced Leadership Program

  • Rebecca Mansfield – Loan Market

  • Donelle Brooks – Lend Capital

Congratulations to all the recipients, and we wish you every success over the coming year.
