Program outcomes

Working alongside a diverse group of Fellows and taking part in their own reflective practice, leaders will develop organisational tools to evaluate and create ethical maturity within their workplace.

  • Learn to identify and understand the underlying beliefs, norms and practices that can support or undermine ethical change.
  • Recognise your ethical ‘default settings’ and learn to step outside them to think more holistically.
  • Use and master new concepts, frameworks and strategies for dealing with ethical risks and challenges.
  • Successfully develop and run an ethical change project with enormous potential.
  • Build ongoing relationships with like-minded leaders.
  • Explore the ways in which you can shape cultures and systems in ways that encourage ethical behaviour.
  • Bridge the gap between ‘business as usual’ and large-scale social, political and moral challenges.

Fellows: learning together

Each year, up to 22 leaders from across Australia are selected to be Fellows in the Vincent Fairfax Fellowship.

While the assessments are made on a case-by-case basis, Fellows are typically executive or senior leaders within an organisation’s leadership team or with divisional responsibility.

We seek applications from leaders of all sectors and backgrounds to support a diverse and multi-disciplinary cohort that can genuinely learn from and challenge one another.

Among the most valuable aspects of the Fellowship is the opportunity to build relationships with leaders from a diverse range of backgrounds.

In recent years, the Fellowship has welcomed leaders from the public, private and community sectors, representing organisations including:
