2024 Mentoring Program Networking Event

Thank you to everyone who joined CFA for our annual Mentoring Program Networking Event!

The lovely event was hosted on Gadigal Land at the W Hotel, Cockle Bay Wharf and, after some time to catch up following the Consumer Congress, Gerard Brody, CFA Chair, kicked off the evening by thanking the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission for their generous offer to sponsor the event, as well as program sponsors and current coordinator for the Mentoring Program Elissa Freeman, without whom the program could not run.

Chandni Gupta, Deputy CEO for CPRC and CFA Deputy Chair, conducted a lovely informal panel with this years mentees who were able to attend the event, Rafi, Marianne, Eirene, Vicki and Rebekah. They discussed their past and current roles in the consumer movement and how they’d enjoyed and benefited from the Mentoring Program, now in its fourth year.

Gerard also conducted an informal panel with two of this years mentors, experienced consumer advocates Delia Rickard and Jo Benvenuti who shared their history on both sides of the mentor/mentee relationship.

Learn more about the Program, meet the current mentees and alumni from previous years.
