Governance

Because every child deserves every chance to reach their full potential

Commitment to “Good Governance”

Every Child CQ Inc. is committed to ‘good governance’, where we aim to ensure transparency, enable adaptive leadership, promote engagement and encourage innovation. In governing the strategic direction of our organisation our governance team acknowledges that creating the conditions necessary to change complex, complicated and entrenched social systems that impact on children’s life outcomes requires considerable innovation and involves substantial evolution of existing paradigms. To achieve this Every Child CQ Inc. governance arrangements, needs to be robust enough to ensure operational coherence yet flexible enough to adjust rapidly to emerging issues, agile enough to develop and implement novel responses and open enough to take advantage or unique opportunities that unexpectedly present.

Some members of the ECCQ Community Leadership Group, along with ECCQ’s Director of Operations, proudly display their commitment to keeping children more than safe.
The Community Leadership Group (CLG) focus is on the overall aspirations of Every Child CQ, this team is responsible for providing strategic guidance, setting high level performance benchmarks, leading broader engagement and sourcing opportunities for improved partnering, investment and influence.
The Management Committee provides a conduit between the Community Leadership Group and the operational arm of the organisation. The management committee comprises of the elected President, Treasurer and Secretary of the organisation and is supported by the Chair of the Community Leadership Group. This establishes a clear distinction between strategic and operational roles and ensures that the Management Committee, through the Director Operations, can get on with the daily business of achieving delivery objectives while the CLG keeps the whole initiative on track for the longer term.
