Williamson participants, LV alumni and guests showed their “CLAN-do” attitude on Wednesday 30 October at our first ever #togetherweCLAN event which was a huge success. Around 120 people came along to hear the 2019 Williamson Leadership Program CLAN groups pitch their big challenges and offer their unique points of view through a group consultation process.
CLANs – community leadership action networks – are a feature of the Williamson and other LV programs and challenge participants to take a deep dive into complex issues that need smart, purposeful and collaborative leadership to address.
Popular pitches on the night asked ‘how might we …’ address issues including women’s financial disadvantage, Indigenous recognition, consumption and waste, trauma and access to housing. The room was abuzz with lively conversation as the audience joined the consultation process to explore the underlying challenges of these issues.
For LV alumni and friends, and anyone interested in sharing discussion on society’s big challenges, keep an eye out for our next CLAN event which will be taking place in March 2020…Watch this space!
