Schmidmaier/Mayne Not-for-profit Scholarship Recipients
Chief Executive Women (CEW) is delighted to announce the recipients of our inaugural Schmidmaier Mayne Scholarship for women leaders in the not-for-profit sector. The new scholarship was established this year in recognition of the commitment and contributions of Dagmar Schmidmaier AM and Lynette Mayne AM, Directors of the CEW Leaders Program inspiring hundreds of women to develop their leadership capacity.

Four scholarships have been awarded to attend the CEW Leaders Program with a full seven-day program of workshops and small groups discussions with in-demand CEW members sharing leadership skills and insights.
