CE update – 4 March 2022


Hello. My name is Jen Blyth, CE of Deaf Australia. I’m currently here in Sydney. We have had staff meeting which most of us are here to discuss our roadmap and what we have been working on. It made me realise that we have done so much work relating to our roadmap. We had posters with lots of post-its covering the papers. I really have an amazing team. We will also have the board coming for the board meeting, training and SGM tomorrow night. I know it is raining in Sydney at the moment, I hope everyone in Queensland is alright. Its been a hard week this week. Also in this TTT we also have a video with an update about the election campaign. Lastly, a short update with some good news: the Greens Party in NSW has asked for an inquiry into Auslan interpreting in broadcasting. They submitted this to NSW Parliament – asking for this inquiry. This will soon be open for submissions, which means Deaf Australia and the community can make submission about this issue. We will also encourage other organisations to make submissions too to the Parliament of NSW to explain why it is important to have interpreters at all pressers and broadcasts. This is a fantastic opportunity and a great example of how building a relationship can make changes happen. That’s it from me, thanks for watching this update, have a great week, and I hope to see you all at tomorrow’s SGM!
