Leadership Fiji has received a boost in the work it does in developing, mentoring and nurturing Fiji’s next generation of leaders as the New Zealand High Commission has renewed its Platinum Partnership under their small grants scheme.

The New Zealand High Commissioner to Fiji, Charlotte Darlow says New Zealand strongly supports the development of the next generation of leaders, and through this partnership, they continue to offer the opportunity to aspiring Fijian leaders to enhance and advance their knowledge and skill sets.

Leadership Fiji’s Board Chair, William Parkinson says they are grateful to the New Zealand High Commission for their belief in Leadership Fiji and for their generosity to continue supporting Leadership Fiji.

Parkinson further says it is through partnerships such as this that Leadership Fiji is able to fulfill its vision of developing and enhancing the quality of leaders in Fiji.

He adds Leadership Fiji’s long-term strategic goal is to establish a Leadership Academy for Fiji and the Pacific and to expand its offering of leadership programs from its current program to across all levels of society.

The New Zealand High Commission has been supporting the Leadership Fiji Program development for over two decades.

This year’s Leadership Fiji program has 30 diverse participants. More than 500 graduates have gone through the program over the years.
