Session 3: TRUE TO PURPOSE – how to keep Catholic social services on mission
Facilitator: Belinda Clarke
How can we stay true to purpose and the best of the dynamic Catholic tradition our organisations have developed within? How might mission and purpose be held as central in all organisational practises in a shifting social and political environment and increasing variety of pressures provided by Government, funding and accreditation requirements? Explore creative peer-based leadership approaches that inspire rather than compel; all in a stimulating adult learning environment.

This program is for staff and board members who are new to the sector, and for those who want to expand their horizons and understanding of core concepts and inspiration for our shared work on the margins.
We have five wonderful facilitators this year, each who will bring unique insight – but also will bring to the fore the knowledge in the (virtual) room. All information about them, the program and registration is here: https://css.org.au/mission-inspired-leadership-program-2023/
