ICMEC Australia has a bold ambition to move the world towards our vision of children living free from abuse and exploitation. Our data products, events, programs, working groups and collaboration services are designed to help the CSE response ecosystem enhance the detection, reporting, prosecution and prevention of child sexual exploitation facilitated online.
But we can’t do this important work alone. They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it takes an entire community to protect them.
We are incredibly fortunate and grateful to have an outstanding community of professionals who go above and beyond to support our work. And without them we wouldn’t be able to achieve the kind of successes that will ultimately help to save lives.
To recognise the significant contribution that so many people make to our work, we launched the Illuminate Program at our inaugural Financial Services Industry Symposium in October 2023.
This program will highlight the people who have provided their time, ideas, networks, tools, expertise or resources to further our cause. And it provides for an ongoing relationship with these incredible supporters to continue shining a light on this heinous crime.
You can meet the people recognised for their tireless support of work below. We will continuously update the details as we acknowledge more of the dedicated people who believe, as we do, that children deserve to grow and thrive safely, free from harm.
Traditionally, allies stand by your side and fight for your cause. And this is certainly the case with the ICMEC Australia Allies. These people have collaborated with us, shared their commercial expertise and willingly represented our mission to their networks and beyond, in a pro bono capacity. They step in to fly the ICMEC Australia flag, lobby for our cause and support our fundraising efforts. And they are vital and valued stakeholders in our mission.
