The recipients of the Chief Executive Women (CEW) Indigenous scholarships were announced at the CEW Annual Dinner held in Sydney on Tuesday 19 September 2017. Tiffiny Vale and Rebecca Lannen will travel to INSEAD, a leading business school in Singapore, to attend the Leading for Results program in November.

Ms Vale is a proud Whadjuk woman from the Noongar Nation in southwest Western Australia. In her 16 years of service to the Western Australian public sector, Ms Vale has worked across justice, equal opportunity and Aboriginal affairs. After recently completing a post-graduate certificate in Indigenous Sector Management, the Leading for Results program will provide the next challenge and prepare Ms Vale for future Master’s study.

Ms Lannen is of Papua New Guinea and Torres Strait Islander heritage and is the Regional Manager for Victoria and Tasmania, Indigenous Affairs Network in the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. Ms Lannen has had an extensive public sector career throughout Australia and the United Kingdom and continues her commitment to volunteering across the areas of people with disability, housing, aged and respite care, and Indigenous services. After studying psychology and achieving post-graduate qualifications in governance and public affairs, the INSEAD program will build on Ms Lannen’s study and experience.

The CEW Indigenous scholarships are funded by the Office for Women under the Australian Government’s Women’s Leadership and Development Strategy. These scholarships, together with the Authentic Leadership Development program scholarships to Harvard Business School announced earlier this year, represent the Australian Government’s commitment to developing and supporting the leadership capabilities of women across the public and private sectors.
