Event Description

Full Description:
Student speaker - Madeline Price, Vice President Gender and Sexuality, UQ Union

Madeline recently created a global social media sensation by organising the Gender Pay Gap Bake Sale initiative at UQ. Viewed by millions of followers around the world, the Bake Sale generated spirited online interest.

Keynote speakers - Lucas Patchett and Nic Marchesi, Founders of Orange Sky Laundry
Young Australians of the Year 2016

Orange Sky Laundry is the world's first free mobile laundry service for the homeless. A crazy idea in 2014 to put two washing machines and two dryers in a van and wash and dry clothes for free. Starting in the streets of Brisbane, Orange Sky has now grown to 9 services across Australia in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Sydney, Sunshine Coast, Canberra, Perth, Adelaide, SE Melbourne and now does over 5.8 tonnes of laundry every week. However most importantly, having over 1,200 hours of positive and genuine conversations every week.

Please note this event is for current year 12 high school students.
