Through its ‘Vision 2025’ development policy, Pakistan aims to become a country underpinned by a strong system of governance, effective leadership and better access to opportunities for women. Alumni from the Australia Awards predecessor programs have made a lasting contribution to the achievement of these goals in the public and non-government sectors. This Case Study explores the leadership and governance contributions of six alumni in the public and NGO sectors. The skills and knowledge gained in Australia have been utilised by these alumni over the 15 to 20 year period since graduation to contribute to the development of Pakistan in a range of areas from governance restructures to the coordination of disaster relief missions.
