Justice Connect's CEO has been awarded a prestigious scholarship

Justice Connect is proud and excited to announce that its CEO, Fiona McLeay, has been awarded the prestigious Dyson Bequest Scholarship to attend the Stanford Executive Program at Stanford University during June and July.

The Dyson Bequest Scholarship is offered by the Stanford Australia Foundation, and provides up to $65,000 (towards course fees and economy travel) for a not-for-profit executive to attend the program.

“I am very excited about this opportunity, and hope it will help build my skills to be a better CEO at Justice Connect,” said Ms McLeay.

“Australia’s not-for-profit sector is rapidly professionalising, and the experience available at Stanford will no doubt impart valuable lessons for me to bring home and help both my organisation, and the pro bono legal sector, continue to thrive in coming years."

Established in 1952, the Stanford Executive Program is the flagship program offered by the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Taught by more than 30 Stanford faculty members, this six-week program features a general management curriculum that is customised to the needs of senior executives working in global companies, government agencies, and not-for-profit organisations.

Fiona will be replaced by Deborah Di Natale, Justice Connect’s director of legal services.
