The scholarships are awarded to members of the South Auckland business community, with the aim of further developing and enhancing the pool of first class leadership talent in the region.

In partnership with the New Zealand Leadership Institute (NZLI), five ‘DB Leading Lights’ will be selected to take part in the NZLI Leadership Mindset Programme in 2017.

These scholarships are designed to foster development and learning opportunities for South Auckland based leaders to enable a step-change in their personal and professional lives. We believe that this will have a positive flow on effect to the wider community in which we all operate. And we couldn’t ask for a better partner in New Zealand Leadership Institute – their programmes are truly world class.”

A DB Leading Light Scholarship recipient in 2014, Barbara Ngawati, a middle leader at Manurewa High School, says the NZLI programme challenged her professional and personal beliefs, values and understandings of leadership. “The outcome has informed the evolution of my own educational leadership practice as well as influence staff and students so that together we are making a greater impact in our school and community.”

The DB Leading Light scholarships are open to all managers and leaders who live or work in the South Auckland area.
