Register: In Conversation with Rachel Hunter PSM

How do we lead the social service sector through this moment?

In times of economic uncertainty, people turn to the social service sector for support in even greater numbers. Right now, Queensland is in a cost-of-living crisis, and 300,000 Queenslanders have unmet housing needs.

What kind of leaders do we need to be to meet and navigate this moment?

Join Rachel Hunter PSM, the first female Director-General of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, as she reflects on her vision and ambition for the future of Queensland, the key changes she’s seen in social policy over the course of her career and how she believes we must lead now.

At this exclusive online event on Thursday, 7 September from 12:30pm to 1:30pm, Ms Hunter will draw on lessons learnt in her esteemed and varied leadership roles, including as Queensland’s Under Treasurer during the COVID-19 pandemic. She will discuss the challenges she has overcome and what it is about her leadership style that has ensured her longevity and success in high-level roles.

QCOSS CEO Aimee McVeigh will be hosting the event, delivered in partnership with QUT Centre for Justice. Tickets are free for QCOSS members and QUT C4J members.
