This year DASSH emphasised member engagement and increased the number of inclusive discussions, workshops, and collaborative projects. NOADD welcomed three new Special Interest Group leads who have led a number of webinars and workshops over the past year.
We have also had a strong impact on policy with support being shown for a number of our recommendations. Over the past 12 months, submissions were made in response to the National Cultural Policy, the Australian Productivity Commission 5-year Productivity Inquiry, the Australian Research Council Independent Review and the Australian Universities Accord.
Over the past year, we have expanded our public engagement through a number of impactful opinion pieces as well as strategic appearances in articles and radio interviews. We have also established a growing presence on social media.
