Our People

The Centre for Social Impact is proud to work with the broadest network of bright minds committed to solving the systems failing in today - and tomorrow’s - society. That includes our team.

We are an organisation of systems thinkers and creative innovators. Our team includes researchers, teachers, policy and advocacy specialists, communicators and marketers, event designers, convenors and thought leaders. We are a collaborative partnership of three universities: the University of New South Wales, Australia; Swinburne University of Technology and The University of Western Australia.
