How can philanthropy support economic recovery and participation?


As we haltingly move towards a post-pandemic world and the economic props fall away, the true impact on employment and our economy will emerge.

Jobs creation and economic participation is a key policy driver that will remain a priority for our country as we continue to navigate through the pandemic. We seek to create a more equal society with opportunity for all, but there are still people that fall between the cracks.

As philanthropy continues to tackle these issues, there needs to be understanding of the economic environment we operate in, as well as the people our systems fail to catch. Who are they and why do they fall through the cracks? Join us as we examine the state of play and share and explore new approaches being taken to support economic recovery and participation across our country.

Creating better job outcomes and supporting skills development for people experiencing vulnerability, is shifting the dial on this complex issue. It is a lens that can be applied across many funding areas.
