Event overview

Our demand on the not-for-profits and charities to provide essential services is always growing; and the sector is responding with enterprise and innovation.

In 2010 the Productivity Commission and ABS estimated the sector contributed over $43 billion to GDP annually and employed over 890,000 Australians. Since then, to stay ahead of growing social and economic demands, new research, new business models and bold leadership are transforming not-for-profits and charities approaches, results and impact.

Hear how the sector is responding to shifting political and ever higher community expectations, and working with newer players in social enterprise, business, government and industry to deliver on social purpose.  

The work of not-for-profits, charities and social enterprises is critical to the social compact between communities and governments and reflects set standards of the kind of society we want to live in. Join CEDA’s cross sector audience for insights into the rapid and complex changes taking place across the country in this critical sector.
