The Saint James Ethics Centre — a Sydney based Not for Profit that provides a forum for the promotion of business and professional ethics — has spread it’s wings to open an office in Melbourne.
And with it a newly appointed Director of Support and Development, Anne Gribbin. While based in Melbourne, Gribbin works on a national basis as part of the Centre’s management team assisting with strategic development. She has a particular focus on ensuring the centre is well resourced.
Gribbin describes the Centre as unique, providing boundary-breaking work. Work which needs a strong financial base to continue to grow and develop and to look to future opportunities such as funding research.
Gribbin is a former educator, trainer and mentor in both the public and private sector, and most recently served as Director of the Alfred Foundation and has previously held positions in marketing, development and government relations in both the Not for Profit and corporate areas.
She is currently the President of the Victorian Division of the Fundraising Institute of Australia and is a member of RMIT University’s School of Business Advisory Council.
The St James Ethics Centre was founded in 1989 by St James Anglican church in King Street, Sydney. The parish’s long term vision led it to incorporate the Centre to allow a degree of independence.
The Centre draws on the disciplines of management theory and practice, psychology, sociology and philosophy to allow ethical questions to be raised, explored and resolved in the workplace. This is done via ethics advocacy, consulting and counselling services and leadership programs.
