The sector is experiencing seismic shifts that are impacting organisations from small social enterprises to large service providers and philanthropic foundations.
The key trends that leaders identify are:
- social and economic changes
- market deregulation and increased competition
- social/impact investment
- procuring for outcomes
- evidence-based practice
- innovation capabilities in organisations to drive change, learn and improve
- place-based service design.
Using insights from Social Ventures Australia’s work with some of these organisations, we’re hosting a panel where thought-leaders from the social sector will be challenged by James Kirby, wealth editor at The Australian, on how they how they manage to mitigate or benefit from the impact of trends in the sector.
On the panel:
- Daisy Mallett, Chair of the Crawford Foundation
- Paige Burton, Australian Youth Representative to the United Nations
- Lina Caneva, Editor, Pro Bono News
- David Crosbie, CEO, Community Council of Australia.
