Do you drive change in your community? You could win a $50k grant on us.
Now more than ever, Australia is a country made up of people from extraordinarily diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds who all contribute to who we are as Australians. And we couldn’t be more proud.
Holden is committed to celebrating and promoting diversity by highlighting those who are driving change within their own communities.
People like Louise Purton - mother, mentor, and blood cancer researcher. She is Associate Director of St Vincent’s Institute (SVI) and Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of Melbourne. As Co-Head of SVI’s Stem Cell Regulation Unit, Louise is leading research into haematopoietic stem cells that can lead to blood diseases such as leukaemia.
Or someone like Patrick Abboud, a journalist, filmmaker and broadcaster. His 10-year commitment to reporting on discrimination against LGBT+ communities around the world and unique storytelling has seen him nominated three times for a United Nations Media Award.
Purton and Abboud are just two of six ambassadors whose stories have been highlighted through the Holden and SBS campaign which encourages all Australians to ask themselves “What Drives You?”
To show our commitment to celebrating diversity and driving change, Holden is offering a $50,000 grant to help somebody implement change in their community. Just visit http://holden.sbs.com.au/drive and outline the nature of your project, your motivation and how you plan to achieve your goal! You could be another step closer to becoming one of the thousands of Australians who are driving our society forward.
