The Director of Programs for national charity SANE Australia has won the 2016 McCarthy Mentoring Not for Profit Executive Scholarship which seeks to support and inspire a leader in the sector and help them achieve their goals.
Sarah Coker, Director of Programs, has the responsibility to manage a diverse range of innovative activities to help improve the lives of Australian’s living with mental illness. SANE Australia’s key focus is preventative health care and early intervention through support, training, and education.
“I am honoured and excited to be the recipient of the McCarthy Mentoring Scholarship for 2016. I believe my mentor will help me achieve my goals by providing a sounding board to talk through issues and obstacles that I am facing at work and by providing exposure to other ways of thinking and working. This is a wonderful opportunity for personal development and I hope it will also allow discussion of innovative ideas from an external perspective that may lead to opportunities for SANE to grow.” said Ms Coker.
McCarthy Mentoring received a significant number of applicants that demonstrated the high calibre of leadership in the not-for-profit sector. We would like to thank all applicants for expressing their interest and congratulate Sarah on winning our scholarship.
