Civil servants to join program

LEADERSHIP FIJI will include civil servants in its 2013 program.

This follows the Public Service Commission opening access to the program to officers below principal officer and for military officers below the rank of major.

Leadership FIJI develops and enhances the quality of future Fiji leaders by empowering emerging leaders with a greater understanding of community issues, encouraging informed debate and facilitating communication between emerging leaders and with established leaders.

Chairperson William Parkinson said this represented an important step forward for the program.

"We try to make sure that each year's program has leaders from as diverse a range of backgrounds and careers as possible and in recent years we have been missing the contribution from public sector participants," he said.

Mr Parkinson said this was enabled through skills development and building relationships, characterised by respect, trust and understanding among individual leaders representing the diverse elements which make up the Fiji community.

Leadership FIJI successfully completed its 11th program with the graduation of 25 participants representing 21 organisations.

Since its inception, 254 leaders from a wide variety of backgrounds and careers have graduated from the program.

They have also announced that applications for the 2013 program are now open and will close on January 25 next year.
