Message from the Chair
This month, I’m proud to highlight some of the incredible work being done in one of our focus areas: LGBTIQ+ people living with disability.
I would like to congratulate the disability advisory group, and in particular our board member Ian Gould, for their leadership and commitment to LGBTIQ+ disability. This has been recognised by a high commendation at the Victorian Disability Awards earlier this month, which is excellent.
Myself and the board also give a special thanks to the people living with disability who have been so instrumental in helping us to understand the key issues and direct the focus of our work – Jake Lewis, Margherita Coppolino, Ki Hayward, Jax Jackie Brown and Cameron Bloomfield.
One of Pride Foundation Australia’s core principles is to engage with the communities at the focus of our philanthropy. By valuing lived experience and ongoing community consultation, philanthropy can be a powerful tool in creating long-lasting social change.
Ruth McNair, Pride Foundation Australia Board Chairperson
