When: Thu 19th Nov 2020, 10:30 – 11:30 (1 hour)
Presented by: Philanthropy Australia
In our final QLD Funders meeting for 2020, we’ll discuss how the trauma of this year’s events has impacted marginalised sections of the community.
Although Queensland has returned to some semblance of normality more quickly than most of the other states, COVID-19 has still brought many inequities and injustices to the surface. Our speakers will provide the group with insights into how this has all played out for those on the margins and how we can perhaps use this disruption to promote long term change.
Philanthropy Australia’s Policy and Research Director, Sarah Wickham will also report on recent changes to electoral laws in Queensland relating to both philanthropic funding and charitable advocacy work.
