Impact 25 is the only accolade recognising the most influential people in the Australian social sector.
For the second time, Pro Bono Australia News readers have selected the members of Impact 25.
Some of Australia’s best known CEOs, politicians, advocates and innovators, along with students and refugees, have been recognised for their influence on a sector that accounts for 4.3 per cent of Australia’s GDP and employs over one million people.
This year more than 280 people from all fields of work were nominated and 13,000 votes were cast to choose the most influential members of the social sector.
The members of 2015’s Impact 25 spend their days advocating for the issues of the day, working with the disadvantaged and many silenced groups, finding ways to improve efficiency, inspiring others and even leading the country.
