We had:

Teresa Corbin, Telstra Chief Customer Advocate, talking about how free payphones have become a lifeline for Australian’s in need. Since the introduction of free calls in August 2021, there have been a staggering over 40 million calls made, with more than 250,000 calls made to critical services like Triple Zero, Lifeline, Centrelink and more in the last 12 months.

Jalara Wagner, Indigenous student at Australian Catholic University (ACU), talking about how she is inspired to teach due to the inequities in Indigenous student outcomes and her focus on giving back to her community and being a role model.
