WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
The Learning for Purpose initiative was created because everyone in Australia benefits from those 600,000 For-Purpose organisations that address social disadvantage, education, well-being, community cohesion, sports, biodiversity, artistic creation, cultural heritage, and more. This sector employs 1.3 million people and motivates about 3 million volunteers, and our reliance on them continues to deepen.
The leadership of this workforce has a profound effect on the purposes and people they serve. Meanwhile, public reforms, growing demand, and increased competition require Not-for-Profit organisations to become more efficient, increasingly innovate, and deliver ever greater impact. They way forward is not to make everyone work harder, but help people, leadership and organisations become smarter.
