Join us at impact2020

These are unprecedented times and the upheaval to our society requirea an extraordinary response from our leaders, our thinkers and our do-ers.

The impact2020 online summit, presented by the Centre for Social Impact (CSI), offers free daily webinars with our educators, researchers and thought leaders who are sharing their research, expert insights, innovative thinking, case studies, tools and resources for our network and the broader for-purpose community in Australia.

We're covering the breadth and complexity of social impact and we're bringing our diverse sector together.

We launched impact2020 on 23 April and we'd love for you to join us - for one or more webinars until 5 June, 2020.

Sign up for more info as we progressively announce our program and daily presenters.
