Leanne Hardwicke and Tim Leslie – Advocacy and Politics

Our guests in this episode are two of the busiest staff members at the Australian Institute of Architects, Leanne Hardwicke and Tim Leslie. Leanne is the General Manager of Policy, Advocacy and Education at the Institute who works at a National level and Tim is a registered architect who works at the State level as the Victorian State Manager of the Institute. Together they share the important work the Institute does to place greater importance on the climate emergency and the representation of indigenous architects, the production of guidelines and research that all architects benefit from, and the advocacy for architects to local, state, and federal government.
