12. Show What Matters™

12. Show What Matters™

March 26, 2021

Community engagement leaders struggle with how to:

  • Involve people who are ‘hardly reached’.
  • Appeal to young people.
  • Engage authentically with people whose first language is not English.
  • Extend the conversation with people who weren’t ‘in the room’ but who are keen to contribute.
  • Overcome constraints of face-to-face engagement in a COVID world.

 

Jacinta Cubis and Cindy Lenferna de la Motte, Head of Customer and Community at Harvest, are excited to share a process that helps people to share their lived experience through photography. We don’t just have to ask people what they think, but instead, ask them to share photos that show what they think.

 

Listen in to their conversation which was held on Friday, 19 March 2021 about Show What Matters™. It uses phones, photos and a digital platform to help organisations engage more broadly and deeply with their communities.

Craig Foster, multiple Logie winner for excellence in sports broadcasting and human rights advocate, Bachelor of Laws, Masters International Sport Management, Member Australian Multicultural Council, social justice advocate and campaigner including #SaveHakeem to free a young Bahraini refugee from a Thai prison, #GameOver for the release of asylum seekers and refugee detainees and #PlayForLives to promote a humanitarian response from the sports industry to COVID-19, joins IAP2A's webinar series: Keep on Engaging.

Moderated by Kylie Cochrane: Director - IAP2 Australasia; Chair - IAP2 International and Managing Principal, Communication & Stakeholder Engagement – Australia and New Zealand, Aurecon.

About Craig Foster
Former Socceroo, Broadcaster, Sport & Social Justice and Human Rights Advocate

Following a celebrated football career as Australia’s 419th Socceroo & 40th Captain, Craig has become one of Australia’s most respected broadcasters with an 18-year, multi Logie winning career with Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) Australia.

Craig is perhaps equally as well known for his work beyond the field and screen, through the social programs he has developed as well as his advocacy for sport and human rights, refugees and asylum seekers and humanitarian causes.

Craig sits on the Multicultural Council of Australia and has a keen interest in multiculturalism and inclusion, and works across a vast range of social programs. From indigenous rights and self-determination, homelessness, domestic violence and refugee advocacy as a Human Rights and Refugee Ambassador for Amnesty Australia, Australia Committee member with Human Rights Watch and Advisory Council member of the Australian Human Rights Institute, UNSW.

Craig developed a primary school initiative to facilitate inclusion with the Australian Government for Harmony Day, is a former Chairman, Life Member and CEO of Professional Footballers Australia (PFA), Australia’s representative body of the Socceroos, Matildas and professional players around the world and has led a number of sport and business missions abroad with the NSW Government and the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).

Craig’s social justice advocacy extends to several high profile campaigns including #SaveHakeem to free Bahraini refugee Hakeem al-Araibi from a Thai prison for which he was a Finalist for the Australian Human Rights Commission Medal, #GameOver to call for the resettlement and freedom of around 500 refugees and asylum seekers indefinitely detained by Australia in PNG and Nauru for almost seven years and #PlayForLives which is a humanitarian response by global sport to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2019, the Australian Financial Review recognised Craig as a ‘True Australian Leader’ and the Sydney Morning Herald as one of the ‘People that Defined 2019’.

Craig holds a Master’s in International Sports Management, a Postgraduate Degree in Football Management, a Professional Coaching License and a Bachelor of Laws.
