The Committee for Brisbane is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that is committed to helping shape greater Brisbane as the world’s most liveable region.
For more than 60 years, the Committee for Brisbane has been an influential, apolitical organisation that provides strong advocacy in creating a better greater Brisbane. Our forums provide a platform for robust discourse and debate on big ideas and issues to shape a more dynamic and exciting city and region.
Our membership is drawn from diverse areas of corporate and business sectors, the creative industries, the higher education sector and community.
The Committee for Brisbane is committed to actively supporting the development of greater Brisbane as the world’s most liveable place.
The Committee for Brisbane is supported by an Advisory Council of highly experienced and well-known Brisbane business leaders who provide thought leadership, policy and activity advice to the Committee for Brisbane.
The Advisory Council has expanded on four key themes identified by the Committee for its strategic focus:
Acknowledgement of First Nations
The Committee For Brisbane acknowledges the First Nations People of the region and their continuing connection to and care of the land, waters and community of that region. We also pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
Our commitment to diversity and inclusivity
The Committee for Brisbane will promote and advocate for an inclusive and collaborative community and enterprises to help shape greater Brisbane into the world’s most liveable place.
We will celebrate diversity and inclusion to create a safe, welcoming and equitable region.
The Committee for Brisbane pledges to embrace and provide equal opportunities to people of all nationalities, races, ethnicities, cultures, religions, ages, genders, sexual orientations, incomes, family/marital statuses, veteran statuses, disabilities, social backgrounds and political opinions.
The Committee for Brisbane’s members come from diverse backgrounds, which benefits the organisation through the sharing of ideas, activities and initiatives which promote social cohesion and increases awareness, respect and understanding within our community.
In our actions to promote community and industry development within greater Brisbane, we will seek out and partner with likeminded organisations.
