NCOSS invites you to join us on Thursday, 24 October for a breakfast event where you will hear directly from a broad coalition of voices around the common concern of economic disadvantage across NSW.

This is an invaluable opportunity to hear from guest speaker, journalist and author of ‘Rusted Off - Why Country Australia is Fed Up’ Gabrielle Chan. With over 30 years of journalism experience, Gabrielle has lived in both regional and metro NSW, experiencing firsthand the cultural and economic divide.

We will also be launching of the ‘Mapping Economic Disadvantage in NSW’ report undertaken by NCOSS in partnership with the National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling (NATSEM).

Registrations and a light breakfast will be available from 7:30am with the event commencing at 8:00am.

Keynote Speaker - Gabrielle Chan

Gabrielle Chan has been a journalist for more than 30 years. She began covering politics in the 1990s for The Australian in NSW parliament and the Canberra press gallery. Since 2013, she has worked for Guardian Australia as a political correspondent and Politics Live blogger. She has also worked for ABC radio, the Daily   Telegraph, in local newspapers and politics. The city-born daughter of a Singaporean migrant, Gabrielle moved to a sheep and wheat farm near Harden Murrumburrah in 1996. She noticed the economic and cultural divide between city and country and the gap between parliament and small town life. She wrote Rusted Off: Why Country Australia is Fed Up, released in 2018 by Penguin Random House.
