HearMe Report Launch

Soundfair is Launching The HearMe Report

What does a world of hearing equality look like and how can we work together to bring it closer?

To commemorate the close of Hearing Awareness Week, on Friday 5 March Soundfair is launching The HearMe Report – a document that centres the lived experiences of people with hearing conditions and identifies ten priority areas for society-wide action.

The report will be launched at midday with support from The Hon Mark Coulton MP and keynote speakers including Suzanne Waldron, and Dr Caitlin Barr.

  • When: 5 March 2021
  • 11am: Welcome

  • Midday–1pm: Speakers
  • 1.15–2.45pm: Networking lunch

The Hon Mark Coulton MP is the Minister for Regional Health, Regional Communications and Local Government in Australia’s Federal Coalition Government. He has served in the House of Representatives as the Member for Parkes since 2007.

Suzanne Waldron is a deaf behaviouralist with a Master’s Degree in Coaching and Neuro-Linguistics. Her research focusses on pro-social leadership and the psychological aspects of inner fulfillment through moving significant ideas(beyond self) into action.

Suzanne works with individuals, organisations and influencers to build cohesive relationships in community, government and not for profits.

Dr Barr is an international leader, researcher, and advocate for putting people with hearing conditions at the centre of systemic and societal change. As CEO of Soundfair Australia Ltd and as an honorary senior clinical researcher at the University of Melbourne, Caitlin brings together consumer voice of people living with hearing conditions with clinical and research perspectives for a common cause of catalysing change.
