Probono Australia has just released the inaugural list of the 25 most influential leaders in Australian not for profit sector and we are pleased to see our EO Mary Waterford on the list, along with other Greater Western Sydney leaders, Randa Kattan from Arab council Australia and Maha Abdo Krayem of the United Muslim Women’s Association. These women share a wealth of experience, risk-taking, demonstrated commitment to social justice and grass roots community work, hard work and mentoring others. We are proud of them!
You can see the full list of those voted onto Impact 25 here.
We are inviting others to join the Olive Ribbon Campaign and make it part of your organisational activity. We are one Australia which will not be divided. Our diversity makes us stronger and richer and we will stand together – hurt one of us and you hurt us all.
Wearing an Olive Ribbon is a simple way to express our solidarity and to start a conversation, something positive in the tragic events of the week. We are encouraging organisations to use it to commence some local conversations, possibly bringing in other partners to assist and & grow the campaign locally in whatever way make suits your community.
