About

Due to the relentless spread of the Coronavirus, and after considerable conversation with members in and around Melbourne and across the country, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the WFLO Institute until October 2021. While we appreciate the ability to gather virtually, we also know that the value of WFLO Institute comes from face-to-face, in-person interactions. Still, the health and wellbeing of our members are our primary concern. 

We eagerly anticipate the return of the Institute in 2021 with expanded offerings for both Year One and Year Two students. In the meantime, we invite you to register for our Virtual Innovation Program happening October 14-November 10, 2020.
