2019 - Social Enterprise and Philanthropic Work

Diane has contributed extensively to the Canberra community through her social enterprise and philanthropic work.

She helped to establish Common Ground, which provides quality tenancies to people who have experienced homelessness and to low-income earners who are unable to access other affordable housing options. She also advocates for people with disability and encourages the growth of new social businesses that employ people with intellectual disabilities. Her work with Hands Across Canberra has been instrumental in bringing together businesses, government and individuals to channel donations to local charities.

Diane’s work has extended to roles with GreaterGood, Boundless, the Canberra Bushfire Recovery Appeal, the ACT Committee for the Fundraising Institute of Australia, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and as Chair of the Social Enterprise Taskforce at the Canberra Business Chamber.
