The Brotherhood of St Laurence in Melbourne is widely recognised as an effective welfare organisation whose programs emphasise development of individual capability.
Conny Lenneberg was appointed as Executive Director of the Brotherhood of St Laurence in January 2018. She has 25 years experience in the development and social justice sectors in Australia and internationally, including with World Vision and with Indigenous communities in Northern Australia. Conny has an MA and honorary Doctorate from LaTrobe University.
At the August lunch the Executive Director of the BSL will present her ideas about effective ways to remedy social disadvantage. It is a vision that eschews more traditional welfare approaches to focus on capacity building. Join us for what promises to be a hopeful discussion of ways to solve serious problems in our community.
