Congratulations to Amna Iqbal for being awarded a place on the Joan Kirner Young and Emerging Leaders Program. Amna will join 21 other women from across Victoria who display exceptional leadership potential and were shortlisted from over 250 applicants. This opportunity will empower women to progress as influential leaders in their communities, sectors and areas of interest. The Joan Kirner program will provide these women with critical skills, networks and experiences required to advance their leadership careers.
Amna was asked to represent the cohort at the opening event of the program, where she provided a moving, inspiring and passionate speech shared with leaders and delegates from across Victoria. Amna reflected on her enthusiasm to be amongst diverse participants on the program, and reminded the audience that the “future isn’t female. The future is here. The future is now”. Congratulations to Amna and all other participants on the program.
