About the role
Board Directors – 2 positions – Queensland
Are you passionate about championing the critical role that advocacy plays in supporting older people and people with a disability to realise their human rights?
Aged & Disability Advocacy Australia is seeking two independent non-executive directors to join its collaborative and committed volunteer Board of Directors.
As Queensland’s independent, not-for-profit advocacy and education service, we have more than 25 years’ experience in supporting and improving the wellbeing of older people and people with disability. Headquartered in Brisbane, we provide free, client-focused services across Queensland and play a key role in the national Older Persons Advocacy Network.
If you are interested in helping us to become a national voice for the rights of older people and people with a disability, increase our service reach, and strengthen our impact as advocates, we would love to hear from you. This is your opportunity to work alongside a proactive Board of Directors to set and oversee ADA Australia’s strategy.
We are looking to complement the skills and knowledge of our Board. We encourage applications from older people, people with a disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, culturally and linguistically diverse communities, and rural and remote communities.
It would be great if you have a background in at least one of the following areas however we embrace diversity, so if you have other skills and experience to offer, please tell us what you can bring to the table in your application:
- Advancing human rights
- Advocacy – individual and systemic
- Digital communication and technology
- Innovation and design thinking
- Disruptive product and program design
- Entrepreneurship and business development
