About the program:

The Sydney Jewish Museum’s new permanent exhibition, The Holocaust and Human Rights, highlights the complex history of human rights and the numerous considerations that the international community is still grappling with in this area. In this exhibition, the power of leaders to create thriving communities and lasting change is evident. With this is mind, the Sydney Jewish Museum has designed their Ethical Leadership Day.

Held in Term 4, the day is for incoming senior-school student leaders. The day brings together students from around New South Wales in a safe and open forum in order to discuss and think about the leader they can become.

The day includes sessions with prominent Australia leaders, interactive workshops, and lightning talks from Australian change-makers.

Space is strictly limited. To book contact bfallon@sjm.com.au
