The QCOSS Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place on Wednesday, 29 November 2017 at 7:30am to 9:30am over breakfast at Souths Leagues Club Head Office, Davies Park, Jane Street, West End. We welcome and encourage members to attend. We are delighted to be joined by guest speaker the Human Rights Commissioner, Edward Santow.
The nation is undergoing what seems to be more divisive debates around equality and inclusiveness. Ed will discuss how the community services sector may be able to enhance its engagement in these important public conversations and give a stronger voice to those whom experience exclusion. Ed leads the Commission’s work on modern slavery, detention and implementing the Optional Protocol to the Convention Against Torture (OPCAT); as well as marriage equality and other human rights issues affecting LGBTI people. Ed also has primary responsibility for the Commission’s work on freedom of expression, freedom of religion and freedom of association. Ed’s prior role was CEO of the Public Interest Advocacy Centre.
