Advance.org brings together global leaders in Australia and around the world as volunteers – in the national benefit. With their assistance, we are able to connect Australians with one another and with Australia to unlock the economic and cultural opportunities through collaboration, investment and innovation. Thanks to support of our leadership, we are able to recognise and celebrate the achievements of global Australians who are at the forefront of their field to inspire the next generation.
