Event description
For refugees, navigating their settlement journey in Australia is not an easy task. How can Australia and Australians be more welcoming?

About this event

Finding a place to rent, a job, a school for kids, accessing health services and developing a sense of belonging and community are all things that individuals settled in Australia as refugees need to navigate. In light of hostile media attention and political narratives, how can Australia and Australians be more welcoming to our new neighbours and instead work to build community?

To discuss these challenges, as well as how we can transform our neighbourhoods, workplaces, and streets into spaces where everyone is welcome, we invite you to attend Boundless Plains to Share, online panel event on the 28th of October. You will hear from speakers Anna Robson, Amiel Nubaha and Dr Nora Amath, with discussion moderated by Grace Edward.

Anna Robson is the co-founder & CEO of Refugee Talent who partners with Talent Beyond Boundaries providing an international refugee recruitment program connecting over 30,000 refugees displaced globally with employers in Australia to fill critical skill gaps.

Amiel Nubaha is the Youth Member of Woodridge, President of the Rwandan Association of Queensland, a Youth Worker and Case Manager for the Department of Youth Justice. Amiel is also a health educator for Marter Health Services Queensland.

Dr Nora Amath is the National Manager for Islamic Women's Association of Australia (IWAA) working in Refugee Settlement. Dr Nora Amath obtained her PhD at Griffith University, looking at how Muslim civil society organisations have responded to the socio-political context in Australia.

The panel will be moderated by Grace Edward, Partnerships and Community Engagement Coordinator at Refugee Health Network Queensland. Grace is a Playwright, Director, and Creative Producer who uses storytelling to investigate what it means to be a third-culture child and a person of colour, living on stolen land.
