Strategy and Leadership Retreat

Strategy and Leadership Retreat

September 21, 2018 at 12pm - September 23, 2018.

The Federation is hosting a Leadership and Strategy Retreat from 21 to 23 September. We are pleased to be able to open up TWO PLACES for other people from the CLC sector and Smart Justice for Young People members. Please fill in this short form to indicate that you would like to be considered to participate. Please note this is just an expression of interest, applications will be considered on a rolling basis. 

While we will consider applications on a rolling basis, they will close on Friday 15 September.

The Retreat will include workshops and key insights from:

          -Raquel Willis from the Transgender Law Centre in the US;

          -Melanie Poole Director of Strategy, Policy and Engagement at the Federation; and

          -Tracey Martinovich Engagement Coordinator at the Federation.

The Smart Justice Advisory Council is a group of a dozen leaders who provide key strategic guidance on the Federation’s criminal justice advocacy, while the African-Australian Communities Forum represents leaders within African-Australian communities who provide guidance and direction on our campaigns and advocacy work.

The Retreat will be a great opportunity to build relationships across the sector including into the election campaign period and beyond. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to deep-dive into strategic campaign building with key civil society and African-Australian leaders.

Our objectives for the retreat are to:

  • build strong and meaningful relationships between the SJAC and AACF;
  • develop key strategy for the election and beyond; and
  • enhance leadership and strategy skills through practical workshops.

By applying, you will be signalling your ongoing interest in advocacy and campaigning on Smart Justice issues. You will also be eligible for nomination to the Smart Justice Advisory Council and if you are African-Australian, you will be eligible for nomination to both the Advisory Council and to the African-Australian Communities Forum. Each of these committees has a crucial role in steering the Federation’s campaign and advocacy work.

The key details for the Retreat will be shared with successful applicants.
