Inspiring Australians’ Network

Our Alumni and Ambassadors are role models for us all and inspire us to be the best versions of ourselves. A key day for their involvement being Australia Day - a day to share our stories. A day to: Reflect. Respect. Celebrate.

Engaging and Inspiring leaders in citizenship.

The Inspiring Australians’ Network consists of a group of outstanding Australians and include finalists and recipients of the Australian of the Year Awards and our wonderful Auspire Ambassadors. These are sportspeople, scientists, business people, actors, social activists, multicultural leaders and community champions who provide inspiration by sharing their stories of resilience, effort, passion, triumph over adversity, and commitment to their cause.

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.

Activities may include:

  • Attending Local Government and community celebrations on Australia Day. A day to share stories. To Reflect, Respect and Celebrate.
  • Visits to schools to support our Aussie of the Month Education Programs
  • Forums during Harmony Week with local communities to promote  equality, diversity and strength in our multicultural Australia
  • At various NAIDOC Week events to encourage and inspire truth of our history in story-telling, celebration of culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • At our Reconciliation Week activities
  • During Volunteering Week to promote and encourage connectedness and community engagement
  • Speaking at Auspire forums, workshops and masterclasses delivered for culturally and linguistically diverse communities
  • At our youth leadership forums to promote and encourage leadership.

Our Inspiring Australian’s Network gathers several times a year to connect, share stories and find opportunities to collaborate on projects as well as to hear from other thought provoking leaders.

We acknowledge the contribution of members within this group who give their time on Australia Day.
