Working On Our Power

Today is International Women's Day. There are events scheduled for the entire day throughout the city. Not to mention that the WOW festival is well underway at Southbank Centre. We would like to take a moment to highlight the amazing work that one of our community members is currently leading.

OOP is founded on a set of organising principles that they wish to uphold throughout:

  • Integrity - to remain honest in our mistakes, and to honour our principles in our work by not compromising or falling short of commitments.
  • Accountability - taking full responsibility for our intentions, actions and decisions and the impact this has on the world.
  • Creativity - making empowered decisions and taking risks in ways that challenge our self-belief and sense of possibility.

There are many, many unsung heroes doing the hard work, and they should be celebrated each and every day.
