We’ve recently moved into our new office in Footscray at 67 Whitehall St in the iconic Kirk House building, circa 1872. We’re enjoying getting to know the fellow tenants Dee Wardrop Speech Pathology & Occupational Therapy.
Nearby the Dream Factory is Melbourne’s new home for design, technology and social impact, with Inspire9 co-working, and Engineers Without Borders Australia. Our Operations Director, Lexi, is a long-term volunteer and Board Member of EWB Australia and is enjoying being able to join staff and volunteers for the occasional Friday lunch, and they’re enjoying having a Board Member available to sign forms and contracts on demand!
We recently met with Greg Mullins from Research Australia, and proud Footscray resident, about the Productivity Commission Inquiry on the Data Availability and Use to get an update on Research Australia’s submission progress and discuss our views on the issue. We’re a proud supporter of Research Australia and look forward to more opportunities to learn and contribute to this important organisation in the future.
