Embedding Cultural Practice in OC’s work: Louisa Whettam joins as Cultural Practice Advisor

Those that attended ChangeFest last month were part of the presentation of the ChangeFest Statement. It was a powerful reminder of the importance of applying a cultural lens across everything we do at Opportunity Child.

A key player in those conversations was Louisa Whettam, who spoke powerfully for indigenous community culture and interests. She worked closely with our CEO Dianne throughout the ChangeFest statement development process and now brings her rich cultural understanding and life experience to Opportunity Child two days a week as Cultural Practice Advisor.

Wendy Mason will be joining Opportunity Child as our new Director of Strategy and Operations on 10th December 2018.


Wendy has held significant roles as the Head of the Commonwealth Bank Foundation, General Manager of the Western Research Institute and most recently with the Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation. Her extensive management and business development experience, excellent networks and track record in stakeholder relations across the government, financial and not-for-profit sectors will be a valuable addition to our team.
