Growing List of Influencers Nominated For Impact 25
Thursday, 10th November 2016 at 10:59 am

More than 150 people have put forward the names of their friends, colleagues and those who inspire them to be in the running for the only national accolade recognising the Australian social sector’s most influential people.

Since voting opened for Pro Bono Australia’s 2016 Impact 25 awards a week ago the sector has rallied to show their support for some of Australia’s best-known CEOs, advocates and innovators, with some new faces also making the list.

One of last year’s winners, Kildonan UnitingCare CEO Stella Avramopoulos, said being named in the Impact 25 was an honour.

“To be part of a group which includes the likes of Rosie Batty, Julia Gillard, Professor Gillian Triggs and Tim Costello was humbling to say the least,” Avramopoulos said.

“One of the most rewarding aspects was the knowledge that this honour was the result of a public vote, which for me was a real vote of confidence in the work I am doing at Kildonan.

“After adding Pro Bono Australia 2015 Impact 25 award winner to my bio, it quickly became obvious how highly regarded the award is. It was always included in the introductions to my many speaking engagements, including national forums.

“Most recently, I accepted an offer to join the board of the Family Peace Foundation and was told it was my inclusion on the Impact 25 list which prompted the invitation.”

Nominations for Pro Bono Australia’s 2016 Impact 25 awards, now in its third year, will close on Monday 14 November. A shortlist will then be released for the public to vote on.

Influencers who receive the most votes will be announced as members of Pro Bono Australia’s Impact 25 in early December.

Readers can nominate up to three people for Pro Bono Australia’s Impact 25 here.

Nominate now and go into the draw to win one free ticket to the Fundraising Institute of Australia 2017 conference valued at $1,345.
