Event description

We hope you can join us for our Anniversary Event: Celebrating 10 years of collaborating to lift labour standards. CAF’s journey to this milestone can be attributed, not only to our dedicated team, but also to the support and collaboration of our industry stakeholders. CAF’s multi-stakeholder approach has formed the bedrock of our success and it is through this collaboration that we have, and will continue to, lift labour standards for vulnerable workers.

The event will be a time to reflect upon CAF’s accomplishments, acknowledge our numerous supporters, as well as provide an opportunity to look toward the future. We are delighted to announce that Anna Booth, the new Fair Work Ombudsman, will be our keynote speaker. In addition, we will have representatives from various other stakeholders who have been instrumental in establishing and sustaining the success of CAF. This includes a cleaner from a CAF Certified building, who will be sharing their experiences as a CAF Representative.
