Pride Foundation Australia’s Ian Gould and Ruby Mountford presented at the Williamstown Town Hall for the 2020 Better Together, and LGBTIQ conference. The presentation described our ‘social change’ approach to philanthropy and used Pride Foundation’s LGBTIQ Disability priority area to show how we build enduring social change.
We showed how our projects were directed at building “Evidence for Change” through two commissioned projects, one at La Trobe University and one at Deakin University; creating “Change Within” through 8 grants to LGBTIQ or disability organisations; and, “Building Community Capacity” creating networks, supporting self-advocacy and building a supportive environment amongst key organisations for ongoing change. (Slide 19 in the attached shows this). The audience enthusiastically supported the approach we take of “for and by LGBTIQ people with disability” through our advisory committee and projects selected for funding.
