Women leaders discuss social, economic equity at Vinnies' Rosalie Rendu Forum


Eminent women leaders in social and economic equality are coming together for the Vinnies NSW's annual Rosalie Rendu Forum in Sydney on 19 October.


Held during Anti-Poverty Week, the theme this year is ‘Cost of Living: Who pays the price for a society divided?’. The forum, organised St Vincent de Paul NSW, highlights the contribution of women to leadership and social justice in and outside of Vinnies. This year’s panel features:

  • Sister Carmel Hanson RSJ
  • Verity Firth, UTS Pro Vice-Chancellor for Social Justice and Inclusion
  • Joanna Quilty, CEO NSW Council for Social Service 
  • Yumi Lee, CEO NSW Older Women’s Network

The forum will take place at the University of Notre Dame, Broadway Campus, along with an online livestream option for those unable to attend in-person.

The forum will hear from leaders advocating on behalf of the people who are most affected by worsening social and economic conditions. The panel will consider how we can best work together for a more equitable distribution of wealth and opportunity and how we can build solidarity back into the structures of society.

Register to attend in-person or online.
