“In 2023 we’re breaking open brave spaces for deeper learning and conversation across our corporate and community networks. We’re choosing to centre connection even more boldly. Whether we’re looking inside – to cultivate authenticity, and wellbeing – or the outside, to influence systemic change, and create space for the most marginalised, we’re all being called to sharpen our awareness and build synergies across our movements to drive our impact forward.”
