PL2022 is an online professional development course for members of Australian parliaments (federal and state). The program is tailored each year to the current context, with this year’s theme being leading through uncertainty.
PL2022 is an interactive and participatory program. Through engagement with practitioners, researchers and peers, we will explore what is demanded of leaders today in their communities, parties and parliaments, in the context of the unique public health, economic and climate challenges we face.
PL2022 will consider how political leaders can act in a way that not only serves their communities, but also improves trust in the institutions of policy, politics and society. This will revolve around maintaining wellbeing, building quality relationships and having influence, and will be supported by leading frameworks that you can apply in your own jobs.
PL2022 is open to all federal, state and territory MPs (other than those in Victoria and New South Wales, who have upcoming elections), with a maximum of 30 participants ensuring that there is an opportunity for intimate conversation.
The program involves six workshops, all delivered online via Zoom on Friday afternoons (1.30 – 3.00pm AEDT). The total cost of PL2022 is $1,000 (plus GST). Upon registration, payment details will be arranged according to individual jurisdictions’ parliamentary processes.
The program is heavily subsidised by the philanthropy of the Susan McKinnon Foundation.
