Congratulations to our CEW Governance Institute of Australia scholarship winners for 2022

Congratulations to our final scholarship winners of 2022, Newland Global Group’s Natasha Jha Bhaskar and Paralympics Australia’s Catherine Clark, recipients of the CEW Governance Institute of Australia scholarship.

Natasha is the Executive Director at Newland Global Group, a leading corporate advisory firm with a focus on Australia-India trade and investment relations. Named one of Australia’s ‘Young Women to Watch in International Affairs 2022’ by Young Australians in International Affairs, Natasha has spent over 10 years working at the Indian Parliament in policy, advocacy and communications.

The scholarship will allow her to complete GIA’s Effective Directors Course and assist her in pursuing board positions.

“We need more women and Asia capabilities on our boards today,” she says.

“The scholarship brings a deep sense of responsibility, to influence culture and behaviours that create equal opportunities, and overcome barriers to gender equality.”

“Creating a sincere fraternity of diversity champions can guide several others to grow, succeed and lead, assisting them in finding their voice and agency.”

Catherine is Paralympics Australia’s CEO, an athlete, coach and public servant who is a passionate believer in the power of sport to unite, strengthen, inspire and catalyse change. With Brisbane set to host the 2032 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, Catherine says the scholarship gives her the opportunity to sharpen her skills to effectively influence and advocate as she contributes to the planning of those events.

“Paralympic sport has the power to change and shape perceptions for people with a disability, so this is about participation, employment, health and accessibility, sport and so much more,” she says.

“My motto is ’lift as you climb’ and that’s what CEW is doing for me.”

Please join us in congratulating Natasha and Catherine!
