Learn to Lead 2022 unites graduates through a shared vision for a sustainable future
For the better part of 2022, climate change has dominated the national conversation, with politicians and businesses increasingly determined to become better leaders when it comes to the sustainability of our planet.
Learning to lead sustainably in the face of climate change was the dominant conversation of this year’s Learn to Lead Program – Leadership for a Better World.
Over 3,900 UNSW graduates from more than 50 countries enrolled in our flagship, free, online short course designed in partnership with AGSM @ UNSW Business School. It covered topics such as environmental sustainability, leading for impact, and investing in a better world.
The overall course rating from participants was 8.4/10. Learners said the course helped them identify opportunities in their workplaces where they can push for more sustainable frameworks and practices and has given them the confidence to advocate more loudly for climate change action.
I think this course is an excellent initiative to help people cultivate sustainable behavior.
Over two weeks learners tackled the following questions:
How can we as individuals make change?
How can we lead in companies with poor sustainability frameworks?
Is there a correlation between sustainability and profit and what actions can we take to improve attitudes towards climate change in our workplace?
To help them navigate these big questions UNSW enlisted the help of course facilitators and experts; Professor Tommy Wiedmann, Frances Atkins, Camilla Love and Dr Michele Roberts. For their efforts learners were awarded with a digital badge accreditation for their participation in the program.
Stay tuned for 2023's program and make sure your alumni details are up to date to ensure you receive exclusive opportunities like Learn to Lead.
