McKinnon Institute for Political Leadership

The McKinnon Institute is Australia’s only organisation dedicated to enhancing the effectiveness of our political leadership. It aims to build the capability and diversity of our state and federal members of Parliament through professional development programs that equip and enable political leaders to lead effectively. Non-partisan and not-for-profit, it was established in June 2019 through a partnership with Monash University and the Susan McKinnon Foundation. In 2020, the McKinnon Institute launched its ‘Political Leadership for 2020' course.
