The Big Idea
Backed by the science of behaviour change, Inclusive Australia works on the simple philosophy that bringing together people from different walks of life will help break down barriers and prejudices.
Two years ago...
an initial working group made up of The Scanlon Foundation, Australia Post, National Australia Day Council, Monash University, BehaviourWorks, PwC and The Shannon Company came together to crystalise the 'Big Idea' - to build a social movement rooted in behaviour-change science and led by the corporate sector to drive social inclusion.
we gathered more than 80 organisations around the country and looked at the lessons from nearly 60 social inclusion programs. It highlighted the need for a body to look at social inclusion and its impacts as a whole and provide the infrastructure required to leverage and scale the collective work of existing organisations and individuals.
In late 2017, Inclusive Australia was incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee and is finalising the details of an auspice arrangement with a Deductible Gift Recipient to secure tax concessions for funders.
the working Board was formed. We are growing the Inclusive Australia alliance as well as securing official support from corporate and media partners in the lead up to the launch. Inclusive Australia will be formally launched with a public awareness and activation campaign that will reawaken audiences, normalise inclusive behaviour and spark respectful discussion into the issue of social inclusion.
