The Executive Leadership Program (ELP) will support and train a cohort of up to ten leaders who are blind or vision impaired between September 2022 to June 2023.

The program will be delivered online through a series of live and pre-recorded sessions (approximately 6-10 hours per month for nine months, with a break over December).

  • Self-reflection tasks;
  • Individual coaching;
  • Training sessions on governance and operational leadership;
  • Observation of BCA and/or partner organisation Board meetings;
  • Guest speakers;
  • Some homework and reading between sessions.

  1. Welcome and Introduction
  2. Intro to Coaching
