About us

Leadership Ballarat & Western Region was established by Committee for Ballarat in 2005.

LBWR supports Committee for Ballarat's objective of building a sustainable, connected and responsive community by developing community capacity.

Leaders Forum (LBWR's annual leadership program) now has a graduate base of more than 320 people.

It provides community-based learning opportunities, professional development and networking opportunities, focusing on the head, heart and hand of leadership.

Leaders in Action (LIA) are program alumni who are committed to shaping the future of our regional communities by volunteering their services pro-bono.
