Labor Leader Rebecca White today paid tribute to outgoing CEO of
TasCOSS, Kym Goodes.
“Kym’s advocacy work has helped shape public debate on
important issues such as housing, education and intergenerational poverty,” Ms
“Her ability to bring the community sector together and actively work
towards a whole of government approach to healthy communities is to be
commended and we thank her particularly for her work on empowering communities
and connecting people with jobs in order to overcome disadvantage.
“Kym’s commitment to ensuring people less fortunate always have a voice
was evident even this week, with the release of the TCCI’s Tasmania Report.
“We are sure Kym’s influence at TasCOSS will continue, and trust
the next CEO has the same passion for investment in social services and
“Labor wishes Kym all the best with her consulting business and into the future.”
