As 2016 begins to wind down we look at a few highlights and some upcoming events.
In research news, we’ve released the latest Bankwest Foundation Social Impact Series looking at outcomes measurement in the community sector, and we’ve worked with the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) on exploring homelessness funding and delivery in Australia.
You may have seen that the Community Council of Australia released The Australia We Want report, finding we are above average compared to other OECD countries in equality of access to employment, education levels, and business confidence, but we are falling short elsewhere. I encourage you to take a read.
On December 1-2 CSI UWA is co-hosting the 2016 Indigenous Business Enterprise and Corporations Conference (IBECC) in Perth with the UWA School of Indigenous Studies. It’s a spectacular two days of vibrant, engaging discussion about the Indigenous economy and social change. You can view the highlights brochure here. It’s a conference to consider.
And in Sydney next week (November 17 – 18) we’re running an Adaptive Leadership for Social Impact Masterclass in Parramatta with partners Social Leadership Australia - an intensive two days focused on the adaptive leadership framework, and how to apply it to your social change efforts.
We’ve been busy once again working with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission to produce the latest Australian Charities Report. Watch this space for the launch - coming in December.
Enrolments are open for our postgraduate courses, the Graduate Certificate in Social Impact at UNSW Australia, Swinburne University of Technology and The University of Western Australia (UWA), and social impact MBA programs at UNSW Australia and UWA. If you know someone with a passion for social impact, encourage them to consider whether a CSI course is the right next step for them.
