The Power of Community & Engagement: Coming together in the face of adversity
Please join us for an engaging conversation with Christine Holgate, CEO of Australia Post, Dr Lisa O’Brien, CEO of The Smith Family, and Dr Simon Longstaff AO, Executive Director of The Ethics Centre.

All businesses have an impact on their local communities, but few have the kind of outsized influence and role held by a company such as Australia Post. Not only does Australia Post provide postal services that connect Australian communities and businesses with each other, as well as the rest of the world, its post offices often also serve as community hubs providing other essential services (e.g., banking).

Nonprofits and other NGOs also have an important role in local communities, often helping to meet needs unaddressed by government or business. The Smith Family seeks to break the cycle of disadvantage by focusing on young Australians and helping to support their education. The Ethics Centre provides services, experiences, and other opportunities to bring ethics into both personal and professional life.

From the bushfire crisis to the continuing pandemic, organizations have both adapted and grown to meet the needs of the communities they serve. What have been the biggest challenges and how have they responded? How does a major company like Australia Post balance the tension of ensuring commercial return vs. providing community benefits for the greater good? How do nonprofits like The Smith Family prioritize their resources when there is so much widespread need? What can for-profit businesses and nonprofits learn from each other and how can they come together to better serve their communities?
