National Talkblack 261120

We had:

Waverley Stanley AM, Founding Director of Yalari having a catch up yarn with Trendy Trev about what is new at Yalari and how they are operating during COVID-19.

Ashish Agar, President of the Australian Society of Ophthalmologists (ASO), Co-chair of the IRIS program and a strong advocate of Indigenous eye health talking about how ASO has renewed its call for a boost in Indigenous eye healthcare services this last NAIDOC week.

Jenny Geddes, CEO of Workplace Giving Australia discussing how Indigenous people and businesses are being urged to back a new push to get much more workplace giving happening in Australia. Jenny says donor fatigue has hit Australia’s battered charity sector in a big way. She points out that whilst the number of working Australians donating to charity through their pay packets is increasing, there is so much more to do.
