Innovators and Leaders in Social Impact Measurements Awards Announced
Wednesday, 10th May 2017 at 5:10 pm

A trio of leading organisations were recognised for their excellence in developing and delivering social impact measurements at the Think Outcomes conference in Sydney on Wednesday.

The Social Impact Measurement Network Australia (SIMNA) Awards, now in their third year, recognise outstanding contributions in three categories: excellence in social impact measurement, change maker in social impact measurement and outstanding social impact funder.

The Women’s Property Initiatives took out the Excellence in Social Impact Measurement Award for their social return on investment analysis which measured the benefits of safe, secure and affordable housing for women. This award was sponsored by Think Impact.  

Alliance Social Enterprises received the Change Maker Award for their development of the Australian Social Value Bank.

The Ian Potter Foundation won the Outstanding Funder award for its integration of stronger and more rigorous approaches to social impact measurement and evaluation across its grant making criteria and recipient requirements.

This years’ SIMNA Awards also welcomed a diverse and experienced judging panel including Sarah Davies, CEO of Philanthropy Australia, Carolyn Curtis, CEO of The Australian Centre for Social Innovation and representatives from The Smith Family (last year’s winner), PricewaterhouseCoopers, Think Impact and Social Ventures Australia (SVA).

SIMNA chair Simon Faivel said more organisations were measuring the impact of their activities and he was impressed by the high calibre of applications.

“At a time of growing inequality and increased competition, it’s vital that organisations are disciplined and targeted in how they contribute to better social outcomes,” Faivel said.

He said this year’s’ winners went “above and beyond the call to measure the social impact of their projects”.

“This years winners have made significant contributions to furthering social impact measurement in Australia. They are innovators and leaders in social impact measurement in Australia,” he said.
