If you're planning to come to the next Alumni Community of Practice in Sydney on Tuesday 20th May and Brisbane on Thursday 22 May, we'd love to get your ideas about what topic you'd like us to explore.
Log in and have your say by posting a comment on this discussion.
I entered the Gavin Mooney Memorial Essay Competition, aed nd much to my surprise, won first prize. The topic was Climate Change and Equity, and I wrote about the way we discuss climate change, and how this excludes those who are most affected by it. You can read it here http://inside.org.au/climate-change-and-equity-whose-language-is-it-anyway/ Have a read, I'd love to hear your thoughts, and feel free to spread it widely. It will be published with 5 of the other entries in an e-book in the future.
I invite you to imagine people with disability being leaders in their own lives and in society. Here is an opportunity to make this vision into a reality. Please promote the My Leadership Matters program through your networks and encourage people with disability to consider participating in this leadership program. http://www.mychoicematters.org.au/become-leader.html
I’d like to acknowledge Gadigal People of the Eora nation, the custodians of the land on which we meet today.
I’d also like to thank everyone at Social Leadership Australia for what has been a big, inspiring, difficult eight months. Terri, Lauren, Lisa, Geoff, Julie, Diana, and Liz particular.
This speech has been largely crowd sourced so anything that you like probably came from someone else and I thank them, anything you don’t I take full responsibility for.
So I’ve been asked to synthesise the thoughts of 25 pretty diverse people on exercising leadership, representing the values of Sydney Leadership 2013 and also providing a leadership intervention, with the words of the great American orators as inspiration, all in ten minutes. No worries mate, piece of cake. MORE >
