Partnership Opportunities

Some Partnership opportunities include:

We are not a traditional membership association but invite a select number of partnerships from the public and private sector.  We work with organisations to enhance their regional engagement and performance.  



Connecting key opinion leaders, across industry, government, academia and the community, to inform public policy debate and to advance a regional agenda through research, analysis, advocacy and events. 



Shaping a region by raising awareness about the issues that are impacting the Western Sydney region, influencing policy outcomes and celebrating its successes. 



Delivering outcomes for Greater Western Sydney as it is one of the youngest, fastest growing and most diverse populations in the nation.
