Cranlana Confidential – Travers McLeod & Emma King – 7 October


Cranlana Confidential is one of the opportunities we’re creating for our alumni to continue to draw on each other’s experience.  This online program is a series of 60 minute conversations, offering an opportunity for you to engage with a prominent alumnus from your own sector, or one you’re interested in.  Our Lead Moderator, Peter Mares, will start the session with a one-on-one interview discussing the guest’s experience of trying to lead their organisation ethically and effectively, before segueing to a group conversation.

Capped at 20 participants, and conducted under the strictest confidentiality, this is your opportunity to talk frankly with leaders in your field, and engage in in-depth, meaningful discussion with your peers.

Exclusive to Cranlana alumni, these sessions are rare chances to share experiences with professional colleagues who can act as a sounding board, feeding into your thinking and actions on important issues.

The Ethical Dimensions of the Federal Budget

Budget making always involves ethical choices, because it requires government to weigh up the interests and needs of different groups, including future generations. In the midst of a pandemic, the ethical challenges are starker than ever. This Cranlana Confidential session will be held the day after the federal budget is handed down in Canberra and two alumni with particular expertise in public policy will join Peter Mares to discuss its ethical implications. Emma King is the CEO of the Victorian Council of Social Service, which works towards eliminating poverty and disadvantage through research, advocacy and policy development. Dr Travers McLeod is the CEO of the Centre for Policy Development, an independent evidence-based think tank that aims to develop long-term policies to promote shared prosperity and sustainable wellbeing.
