Join Communities Of Collaboration Host Fi Peel and Lived Experience Manger Morgan Cataldo chatting about the sacred obligation of building relationships and working alongside her lived experience workforce as distinct from traditional management approaches. Listen to Morgan's unique perspectives on the reclaiming of clinical labels as a source of Mad Pride, challenges of intersectionality, and the nuances of the multiplicities of human identity. Share in Morgan and Fi's exploration of the nuances of moral injury and importance of understanding human connection from a relational lens.
Morgan Cataldo (pronouns: she/her) dedicates her professional life to developing and advocating for participatory practice and peer education as essential levers for creating true, lasting, power-shifting systemic change in services for systemically neglected communities.
Bringing 12-years of experience, Morgan is currently leading Y-Change, an innovative platform within Berry Street, one of Australia’s largest independent family service organisations. Y-Change engages, trains, employs and supports young people (aged 18-30) to access and harness their lived experience of socioeconomic disadvantage as a significant expertise, and apply their unique insights toward organisational and sector discourse and advocacy.
Separate to Y-Change, in her independent consultancy practice, Morgan advises, coaches and consults with organisations across Australia who are seeking to understand the role of power in their everyday work, and how they can design and shape more meaningful policies, programs, and services by partnering with people with lived experience relevant to their purpose.
Morgan also serves on the Boards of 100 Story Building and The Constellation Project.
