When Pride came face to face with advocacy groups in her time working as an adviser to former senator Natasha Stott Despoja in the Australian Parliament, she decided she wanted a change.

From a young age, she had a sense of justice and empathy instilled in her by her parents, who welcomed newly arrived migrants and refugees into their lives, and so a job in the charitable sector made sense as a next career step.

Taking on the head of policy and advocacy at Oxfam Australia, Pride found a passion for the international aid sector and when the opportunity to lead Hagar Australia came up she jumped at the chance.

Hagar works across Afghanistan, Cambodia, and Vietnam, supporting each client on an individual level to secure safe accommodation, access counselling, obtain legal support and employment. Pride says this is what it takes to ensure long-term sustainable change.

As head of Hagar Australia, she is fighting to raise awareness back in Australia and create a sustainable organisation that carries on its work for years to come.

In this week’s Changemaker, Pride talks about the challenges of leading a small charity, how to make the change to the charity sector, and why perseverance is important.
