In recognition of the enormous legacy of the late Chloe Munro AO, the Clean Energy Council and a coalition of organisations have established the Chloe Munro Scholarship for Transformational Leadership. The scholarship honours Chloe’s legacy and supports the next wave of female leaders.
The scholarship is open to emerging and mid-level female leaders in the fields of renewable energy, energy management and carbon abatement. Successful applicants will receive a fully funded scholarship to undertake one of two courses offered by Education Provider, Women & Leadership Australia.
The women selected to undertake the courses will be encouraged to establish a strong network to support each other and further build their leadership capability and drive collaboration to continue to change the Australian energy system.
Applications for 2022 have now closed. The next round will open mid-2023.
Chloe Munro AO was a leader and pioneer of the clean energy industry. Throughout her lifetime, she played an integral role in accelerating Australia’s transition to renewable energy and served as an inspiration to many – especially women working in the sector.
On 25 August 2021, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning hosted a commemoration of Chloe’s exceptional career and life achievements. The video of the commemoration can be viewed below.
