Leadership and The Big Idea: From Purpose to Impact

4 July 2019

Join LV alumni, Inclusive Australia representatives and 2019 Williamson and Folio participants to explore the Inclusive Australia story and the role of leadership in social change. 

The conversation will be hosted by Andrea Pearman (WCLP'05), General Manager, Community and Philatelic, Australia Post, Justin Homer, Partner, The Difference, PwC, and moderated by Mark Fuller (WCLP'12), Deputy Editor (Print) and Editor, The Saturday Age. Two years ago an initial working group made up of The Scanlon Foundation, Australia Post, National Australia Day Council, Monash University, BehaviourWorks, PwC and The Shannon Company came together to crystalise the 'Big Idea' - to build a social movement rooted in behaviour-change science and led by the corporate sector to drive social inclusion.

After learning from more than 80 organisations and nearly 60 inclusion programs around Australia, Inclusive Australia will be formally launched this year with a public awareness and activation campaign to reawaken audiences, normalise inclusive behaviour and spark respectful discussion into the issue of social inclusion. Andrea Pearman (WCLP'05), General Manager, Community and Philatelic, Australia Post has been one of the drivers of this “Big Idea”.

During the hosted conversation and Q and A with the audience, themes will include:

  • The impact of LV alumni beyond their program experience in collaborating across sectors and driving change for the greater good 
  • Applying values, purpose and leadership to make a difference in identifying and tackling a daunting community challenge
  • The opportunities and challenges in developing collaborative cross-sectoral partnerships to achieve important community outcomes
  • Aligning professional expertise and organisations to purpose and impact• Creating a movement – challenges and overcoming barriers, creating success
