Western Sydney is moving fast. Strong investment in the region combined with a booming population calls for a coordinated, strategic leadership approach to ensure the region’s aspirations are achieved.

The newly launched Western Sydney Leadership Dialogue (WSLD) aims to provide this strategic approach.

WSROC is one of the four founding strategic partners of the WSLD alongside Western Sydney Community Forum, the University of Western Sydney and Sydney Business Chamber.

The WSLD is a non-partisan, not-for-profit initiative designed to engage Sydney in a productive discussion about Western Sydney. It aims to encourage interaction between key influencers and opinion leaders in the region and drive the public policy debate about Western Sydney.

NSW Premier and Minister for Western Sydney, the Hon Mike Baird said “The Dialogue represents a united voice for Western Sydney and by opening up the region’s conversation to NSW’s major stakeholders, will ensure the area is well-placed to meet future aspirations and provide a strong platform for future leaders.”

WSROC President Cllr Tony Hadchiti said “It is an exciting time to be part of Western Sydney. It is a diverse and vibrant region, one that is quickly growing and constantly evolving. The WSLD brings together key leaders from all sectors of our community so we can take a strategic approach to the development of our region.”

Chairman of the WSLD, Christopher Brown AM, said “Western Sydney is now on the radar more than it has ever been, but with that profile comes the need for an informed and co-ordinated approach to ensure the region’s vision is understood and well-supported.”

“[it] will facilitate the conversation on public policy reform, and advocate for the sustainable development of one of the fastest growing regions in the nation,” he said.
