Consumer Mentoring

28 July,10:00 am - 11:00 am

There is no better teacher than experience! In this very special mentoring series, we invite consumers to come and learn from some of Queensland’s very experienced consumer representatives. Listen to the wisdom of veteran consumer representatives in a relaxed and friendly environment. Ask the questions that will help you build your confidence to represent Queenslanders in a wider range of healthcare settings than ever before.

Who are you representing? Bringing your whole self to consumer partnerships with Zee Vayani.

10am – 11.00am Thursday, 28 July 2022 via Zoom

We invite you to join Zehnab ‘Zee’ Vayani, a consumer representative with an inspiring track record in successfully advocating for health services to be more accessible, holistically focused and better integrated around the needs of health consumers and their families.

As a person from a culturally and linguistically diverse background, Zee is often asked to represent this perspective, yet she is also a student, a parent and family member and a carer. In this inspiring session, Zee will reflect on everything we deal with every day and how these layers influence how we interact with our healthcare system. She will talk about the challenges of being asked to focus on a single aspect of her experience in her consumer roles, and how by bringing our whole selves to our consumer representative work, we can enrich the outcomes and make a deeper impact.

There will be plenty of time to ask Zee questions during the session. We want you to leave the session feeling confident to bring your whole self to the table and be equipped with some helpful strategies and ideas to use in your own consumer partnerships.
