Description

Creating conversation!

Lorana Bartels really cares about making the criminal justice system fairer and more effective. She is also committed to supporting women to manage their roles in their workplace, studies, family. Lorana is our inspiring guest speaker at our inaugural breakfast on 31 July. Not your traditional brekkie networking, Lorana will share her passion for criminal justice issues and pose challenging questions for discussion.

About Lorana

Associate Professor Lorana Bartels, Head of the University of Canberra's School of Law and Justice, joined the University of Canberra in 2011 and was appointed an Associate Professor in 2014. She has previously held research and policy positions at the Family Court of Australia, the NSW Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, the NSW Attorney-General’s Department, the NSW Public Defenders Office, the University of Tasmania, the Australian National University and the Australian Institute of Criminology. She teaches and researches in a wide range of criminology and criminal justice areas, with a particular focus on sentencing and corrections, as well as the treatment of women and Indigenous people in the justice system.

We do things differently

Our breakfasts will be small so we can bring our conversations to the next level of greatness, value everyone’s contributions, inspire new thinking, and create a community that looks forward to co-create the future. This is why there will be only up to 10 people attending each brekkie.

About breakfast

We’ll start our breakfast with orange juice, a selection of seasonal fruits with creamy yoghurt and palm sugar syrup, breakfast pastries and bread, brewed coffee and tea, and we'll finish up with poached free-range eggs, rocket salad, goat's cheese and a muffin.

About the Network of Possibility

How would you like Canberra to look and feel in 15 years – and what will you do to make your vision a reality? I want it to be more inclusive and supportive of people on the margins. That is why I founded the Network of Possibility, a philanthropic endeavour which uses the unique skills of local professionals to raise much-needed funds for our local charities. In our first year, we have proudly supported the Tara Costigan Foundation (TCF). The Network has contributed over $2000 to TCF from just three cocktail receptions. We hope to make an even bigger contribution to more organisations in our second year.

The Network of Possibility provides a neutral and supportive space for members and guests to share defeats as well as triumphs, seek advice and find social connection. We do not systematically exchange business cards or present elevator pitches. This is a relationship driven network where we prioritise getting to know each other. We don’t tell, sell, or yell and no one needs to persuade or convince us of their worth. We know you’re worthwhile. We want to get to know what your purpose is (not your level, status or rank). What makes your heart sing and how can we help you achieve that?
