Session 4: DELIVER SOCIAL IMPACT SUSTAINABLY – how to thrive together for the common good
Facilitator: Robyn Miller
This final session brings the first three together and focusses on practical action. How can core purpose and associated principles be best applied within the Catholic social services sector and in our broader community? Learn how to maintain mission and quality under present and prospective funding models while leading and working in teams from diverse backgrounds. How might leadership adopt a strategic approach that brings together delivery of social impact, respects staff security and worth and holds organisational sustainability for the common good.
