Networking Events

We understand that networking and building positive and collaborative professional relationships is essential to successful workplaces.

CCER’s networking forums provide an opportunity for peers to come together to discuss matters of mutual interest, learn from each other and share resources. Regular HR networking forums include Systemic Schools, Catholic Independent Schools, Social Services, Religious Institutes, Retreat Centres, Dioceses and WHS. We also hold other events for you throughout the year.

Our Faith at Work dialogues seek to promote vibrant conversation about the practical, moral and ethical issues confronting professionals. Guest speakers have included federal opposition leader Bill Shorten; bioethicist Bernadette Tobin, and Supreme Court judge and author Michael Pembroke.

The Bishop Manning Lecture is held biennially. This Lecture honours the work of the former Catholic Bishop of Parramatta, Kevin Manning and his contribution to creating Catholic workplaces that are imbued with justice and human dignity. Previous lectures have been given by The Hon RJL (Bob) Hawke AC, banker and economist Saul Eslake,  and lawyer, activist and indigenous leader, Noel Pearson.
