Melbourne, 21 April 2022 – Life, health and wellbeing insurer, AIA Australia, has launched an exciting new community and leadership program, focused on supporting Australians to live healthier, longer, better lives.
Called AIA Impact, the program will see senior leaders from AIA partnered with leaders of not-for-profit organisations that are focused on the prediction and prevention of chronic diseases.
Participants will develop a two-year strategic plan to assist the not-for-profit organisation to achieve their goals, and then execute key strategic projects using the skills and expertise of the AIA community.
AIA Australia CEO and Managing Director, Damien Mu said "There are five chronic diseases that lead to more than 90% of deaths in Australia, yet these are largely preventable. This is why a major focus of our work is on health promotion and the prevention and early detection of these diseases.
"The vision for AIA Impact is to provide opportunities for our people to work closely with organisations focused on preventing disease, to deliver health and wellbeing outcomes for Australian communities."
To bring the program to life, AIA Australia has partnered with The Growth Project, which will deliver a structured development program for the AIA Impact participants over a two-year period.
AIA Australia is currently seeking expressions of interest from not-for-profits and will be interviewing and selecting four organisations in May, to take part in the program commencing in July.
AIA Australia is looking for leaders working on the prediction and/or prevention of one or more of the following diseases:
- heart disease
- respiratory disease
- mental health conditions and disorders
More information about the program as well as application forms for not-for-profits, can be found on the AIA website.
