Esperance Ravensthorpe Leadership Initiative

We are excited to announce the launch of the Esperance Ravensthorpe Leadership Initiative (ERLI)

ERLI is a regional leadership program commencing Feb 2023 that has been locally developed to invest in our potential and emerging leaders by providing guidance and support for participants to learn and refine their leadership skills. We anticipate that this will result in long-term benefits for the local region. RDA Goldfields Esperance will deliver ERLI with the support of our program partners: Esperance Chamber of Commerce and Industry and South Regional TAFE.

At this stage we anticipate running the Goldfields Leadership Initiative in Kalgoorlie-Boulder in 2024.
