Annual Report 2021 - 2022

Legal education and capability development

Aspiring Leaders workshop

In 2021–2022, we conducted our first Aspiring Leaders workshop for staff stepping into leadership roles. The workshop provided participants with an opportunity to analyse what leadership is and to reflect on how they can use their strengths, capabilities, and values to effectively make the transition from being an individual contributor to being a people leader.

The full-day workshop was so popular that a second was scheduled in 2022, and it will be offered again in 2023.

LEAD alumni training and networking day

Legal Aid NSW’s LEAD Program is dedicated to developing the leadership and management capabilities of our staff by Increasing leadership capabilities and by providing professional development opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff.

We conducted the first LEAD alumni training and networking day for established leaders in 2021–2022. Invited staff completed the LEAD Program several years ago, and the alumni network will help to keep them connected and offer opportunities to refresh staff training.
