Take your community leadership skills to the next level with streetwise mba

Take your community leadership skills to the next level with streetwise mba

NZF is delighted to announce that it’s giving out a bursary for emerging Muslim religious leaders and other community champions to take part in the streetwise mba, a highly experiential leadership programme aimed at helping leaders become more inclusive.

The programme uses the city as the classroom, taking participants to places they wouldn’t usually go to meet with a variety of other leaders they might not otherwise meet. The programme brings together people from different backgrounds with a wide range of experiences, all leaders from across the public, private and charity sectors. The purpose of the programme is to develop the participants’ cultural intelligence to lead strong, resilient teams and make better decisions.
