We independently invest our time and resources back into the humanitarian sector where they are most needed and most valuable.
Aligning with our social purpose commitments, we invest our time and expertise into supporting our sector. This includes research, events, mentoring, education and training, supporting local partners, promoting ethical business practices and responding generously, from a position of ‘yes’ to the requests of our peers.
Honesty, bravery and evidence are key in this endeavour. Independently funded and future-focused think pieces and contributions allow us to pose questions to the sector, and on behalf of the sector, being propositional, challenging the status quo, and promoting progress on topical issues.
Our Off the Record: Candid Conversations with Humanitarians series features speakers with interesting insights on topical humanitarian issues or contexts. We ask them the tough questions, and invite the sector to do the same.
Sign up to The Haggler to hear more about our events.
We endeavoured to reach out to our peers and offer what we could. This included:
From big picture issues, to career ideas or acting as a sounding board, we will always make time to have a conversation over a cup of coffee (or any other beverage). If you’ve got an interesting idea, we want to hear it.
Humanitarian Drinks! Join us and fellow humanitarian workers on the first Thursday of every month at the Mitre Tavern, 5 Bank PI, Melbourne from 5PM onwards. We hope to see you there.
