The conference was held for community leaders, service agencies, politicians, academics, researchers and government representatives to come together to participate in responding to the challenge of the community sector having to play a critical role in delivering an Australian social inclusion agenda.

Linda participated on a panel with Dr Helen Szoke, Ms Manar Chelebi and Ms Mary Patetsos and chaired by Mr Greg Kelly.  The topic discussed was Examining Positive Change Through a Human Rights Perspective.
