Strategic support and communications


2016 – Present

Meridian (formerly AIDS Action Council of the ACT)



Meridian supports and empowers people in the ACT and surrounding regions who face discrimination and marginalisation, including people living with and impacted by HIV and AIDS; people of diverse sexualities, gender identities, and sex characteristics; people from diverse cultural backgrounds, including those who have sought asylum; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people; sex workers; and people who use drugs.

Collective Action provides strategic advice and support in the areas of public health and inclusion. As part of this role, Collective Action conducts research to identify the needs of diverse community groups, develops and evaluates health promotion programs and campaigns, drives advocacy efforts to guide public health policy in Australia, and provides high-level technical advice and support on organisational strategies. Collective Action also provides support writing and editing research, policy, advocacy, and other communications documents.
