Our Team

Our team consists of full time staff, casual staff and contractors, who work together to carry out the Coalition’s goals and objectives. With a diversity of knowledge and expertise represented among our team members, our culture is characterized by the same values that guide the Coalition’s work: collaboration, community and inclusiveness. We are of the belief that faces may come and go, but culture stays the same.
