On Friday 13 August, Enactus ECU elected Raquel Ribeiro Louro (Masters of HRM) as President, Jared Lee (Bachelor of Commerce ) as HR Manager, Hasit Gadani (Master of Project Management) as Secretary and Katrina Gorlanchuk (Bachelor of Commerce ) as Website Manager and Marketing support.
Raquel is a committed and enthusiastic long-term member of the team having served the previous 12 months as HR Manager. She will carry her knowledge and enthusiasm into her new role of President. Hasit has demonstrated that it is possible to be an active Enactus ECU team member despite not being based in Australia (he supports the team from India!). He has shown that distance is not a barrier to impact and engagement!
We wish the team all the best for the forthcoming year and look forward to working with them in planning and running a Sustainability Festival at Hillarys Boat Harbour, with support from a diverse range of partners including the City of Joondalup, on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September 2021. The aim of the festival is to build awareness and behaviour change around the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. It is also hoped that the Festival might be the spark for future team projects.
The Festival project is being co-led by team President Raquel and Luis Ramirez (Master of Business Administration). The team is being supplemented by volunteers from the TSM2202 Introduction to Event Management and TSM3501 Event Operations Management units. Sustainable transport options for the Festival are being explored by MAN3115 Applied Project Management student.
True to the Enactus ethos – with collaboration WE ALL WIN!
