Launch of Ethics Fellow for NFP Sector
Monday, 14th September 2009 at 2:23 pm

Patrick McClure AO, a former Mission Australia CEO has been appointed as an Ethics Fellow for the Not for Profit Sector to help build community capacity.

The appointment is a joint role of the Centre for Social Impact (CSI) and St James Ethics Centre (SJEC)

McClure says he will be consulting with leaders in the community, business and government sectors; working with them to identify and articulate ethical issues within the Not for Profit sector; and seeking to promote codes and practices that reflect ethical behaviour.
 
The role has four aspects:
 
· Facilitator:  of discussions on ethical issues
· Educator: developing training materials and contributing to courses of the CSI and SJEC
· Commentator: articulating issues in the media and in conferences and forums
· Consultant:  offering confidential advice to Not for Profit organisations.
 
McClure was Chairperson of the Australian Government’s Reference Group on Welfare Reform, Deputy Chairperson of the Welfare to Work Consultative Forum, Member of the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership Board, Chairperson of the OECD-LEED Forum on Social Innovation based in Paris, Member of the Prime Minister’s Mature Aged Taskforce and Member of the Federal Government Board for a New Tax System. 

He was a participant in the Australian 2020 Summit and is currently a Commissioner of the Australian Fair Pay Commission. He was awarded an Order of Australia (AO) in 2003, an Australian Centennial Medal (2001) and was selected as an AFR-BOSS True Leader (2005). He was winner of the Equity Trustee’s EQT CEO Awards for "Lifetime Achievement" recognizing "leadership excellence in the non-profit sector". 

In accepting the new role McClure says he considers that the global financial crisis has provided an opportunity to pause and reflect on what type of society we want to leave to our children and grand children.  

McClure says it also highlights the importance of applied ethics in all sectors of the economy.  

He says the case for ethics in the Not for Profit sector is compelling:  contributing to the good of society, enhancing the reputation of the sector, developing sustainable organizations and offering values-based leadership.
