Auspire Ambassadors Support Local Communities
This year, Auspire was delighted to support local community Australia Day celebrations across the state in metro and regional WA. 20 Ambassadors from our Inspiring Australians Network were involved in community celebrations of all sizes, including wonderful recognition to Aboriginal culture through to smaller and more intimate citizenship ceremonies at Local Government Councils. During the year our Alumni and Ambassadors volunteer their time and energy to participate in our initiatives designed to focus on the concepts of community leadership, social inclusion, reconciliation, diversity, civics and citizenship; all important community-strengthening themes. The overarching theme for Australia Day 2020 being: A day to share our stories – Australia Day. Reflect. Respect. Celebrate.
Katie Curo, one of our 2020 Ambassadors, visited Newman on Australia Day. A country girl and Anthropologist, Katie is passionate about community, technology and human connection. She strongly believes in putting people at the centre of any intervention intended to positively impact their lives. Her work focusses on crafting contexts for people to come together to create localised solutions to complex social problems. As an Auspire Ambassador, Katie gets the opportunity to continue exploring these themes and integrate her passion for volunteering and work and get the opportunity to experience first-hand different communities and the people that make them.
Katie described her experience of being an Auspire Ambassador this year, “I loved having the opportunity to meet with the local people and hear all about community life in Newman – having a coffee with the locals was easily my highlight of the weekend!”
