Advance's vision is to empower a global Australian leadership community to harness its expertise and influence to advance the nation, Australian companies and its people.
As both an organisation and a community, Advance seeks to: identify and convene leaders from the one million Australians overseas and alumni of Australian universities; recognise and promote global Australian success and talent; help build globally competitive Australian companies; influence Australian public policy; engage corporate Australia; mentor Australian companies and future leaders; boost Australia's role in a rapidly changing world; and create value for Advance members and stakeholders.
The Advance membership represents a broad range of talent and expertise including: global Australians who want to be a brain resource to Australia through their knowledge, influence and expertise; Australian companies with global growth aspirations; young Australians who want to make their mark; and established Australian leaders who want to give back to the next generation of Australian talent.
Advance is a non-profit organisation with a community of over 39,000 connections across 90 countries. Vital financial support is provided by the federal government, donors and corporate partners who share in our vision that Australian talent is our greatest export and our most dynamic resource.
