As usual, there is great community interest in the latest Social Innovation Sydney event tomorrow, and we’re looking forward to another great turn out.
The theme for the day is ‘Resilience’ with our panel discussing what this means in our society and some practical examples of social entrepreneurs who have been able to build businesses around this.
Social Innovation Sydney is also very proud to announce Carla McGrath as part of our panel:
Carla McGrath is a proud Indigenous Australian woman from Thursday Island. Although raised on the mainland, Carla retains strong family and community ties to the Torres Strait Islands.
Carla is the Business and Program Development Manager at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence (NCIE) and a delegate to the National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples. Prior to joining NCIE, Carla was the Relationships Manager at the Australian
Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME). She has also been the National Indigenous Officer for the National Union of Students and is currently completing a Bachelor of Primary Education.
Carla has a unique perspective on the resilience of Indigenous Australians.
