New ACOSS CEO
Wednesday, 21st July 2010 at 5:25 pm

The newly appointed CEO of ACOSS, Cassandra Goldie will move into the top job just four weeks before the Federal Election.

Goldie has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of ACOSS, the nation's peak council of the community and social services sector after the resignation of former Northern Territory Chief Minister, Clare Martin who led the organisation for the past two years.

ACOSS President, Simon Schrapel says Goldie comes to ACOSS from the Australian Human Rights Commission where as Director of the Sex and Age Discrimination Unit she played a pivotal role in the inquiry into pay equity and paid parental leave.

Schrapel says her impressive leadership, public advocacy credentials and her track record in policy and management make her ideally suited to this position.

Goldie has an extensive career in the community sector in Australia and internationally working in the human rights, law and justice fields.

She has previously been the Director of the Homelessness Legal Rights Project at UNSW, a consultant to UN Habitat, Solicitor in Charge of Client Services with Legal Aid in Western Australia and Executive Officer of the Darwin Community Legal Service.

Goldie has also been President of NTCOSS and Board Member of ACOSS (2001-2002) and was an ACOSS Law and Justice Policy Advisor (2000-2006).

She will take up the position on July 26th, replacing Clare Martin who has been appointed a Professorial Fellow with The Northern Institute, a new research and development enterprise with Charles Darwin University.
