Captains of change: Q&A with Commissioners, Public Advocate and Senior Practitioner

Monday 4th August, 2014: 3:30am - 5:00am

This conversation, moderated by Graeme Innes, former Disability Discrimination Commissioner, challenges thinking on ways to influence change. Panellists are asked about the way they advocate for change and how they use their positions of authority to safeguard the rights of people with a disability. How does this help advocates in their work? And what do they see as the hot topics?
