Everyone has a voice.

Together we walk side by side.

We are delighted to have launched the first Side By Side event on Friday 10 November together with the Financial Services Council, Portfolio Construction Forum, Hattonneale and Conexus Financial at Carriageworks in Sydney.

The event saw a number of leaders from the finance sector including Geoff Lloyd (CEO and MD of Perpetual), Chris Cuffe AO (founder of Australian Philanthropic Services), Michael Traill AM (Author of Jumping Ship and former CEO of SVA) and Allegra Spender (CEO of Australian Business & Community Network) talk about their experiences, revelations and hopes for addressing inequalilty in the future. Special thanks to our MC, Graham Rich.

Wayside Ambassadors Claudia Karvan and Indira Naidoo and the Wayside Chapel’s CEO and Pastor Jon Owen also gave some great insights into how we can work together to shift the needle on inequality.

We thank everyone who contributed from the finance, education, social and government sectors as well as the community and homeless, who truly met Side By Side to discuss ways address the issues of social inequality, marginalisation, poverty and homelessness.

If you attended, we’d love to hear your comments and ideas.
