The Lady Musgrave Trust 11th Annual Forum on Women and Homelessness
The Annual Forum is a sector driven event that is developed each year by a joint Working Group Committee comprising representatives from Office for Women, Centacare, QShelter, Queensland Health and the Department of Housing and Public Works and The Lady Musgrave Trust.
Now in its 11th year, the purpose of the annual Forum on women and homelessness is to:
- Identify and talk about the key challenges that the sector is experiencing
- Bring together experts to provide relevant advice and updates on issues
- Provide a platform for improved collaboration on issues
- Share new ideas that can be leveraged to improve the lives of the women that have become or are about to become homeless.
You will have the opportunity to meet and interact with peers and colleagues to share and discuss your challenges and experiences, forge new connections and grow your supportive network in the community and homelessness sector. Attendees include representatives organizations working in homelessness, universities, government bodies, not-for-profits and the broader community.
Human Centred Design (HCD) is a framework that supports organisations and social enterprises who want to design services that deliver social change and impact.
As many organisations are running or thinking about offering a mentoring program to their clients, this immersive and hands-on masterclass will give you an introductory overview of the steps it takes to design a mentoring program for women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness using HCD.
Dr Ruth Knight from The Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Non-profit Studies will explain how empathy and creative thinking can create better outcomes for your beneficiaries. You will walk away with invaluable insights and learnings to take back to your team.
