ACFID research

To inform debate and discussions at the ACFID National Conference, ACFID engaged Oxfam Australia, in partnership with Inventium, to examine how innovation is currently understood and applied by ACFID member agencies.

This research formed a discussion paper for conference and is currently being refined following input and a workshop at conference, for launch by the end of the year.

ACFID also held a masterclass prior to the Conference, designed by James Whitehead (Oxfam GB), David Paterson (previously World Vision, now MD of Cornerstone Strategy) and ACFID. Attended by nominated representatives from 33 member agencies, the workshop explored why innovation is a critical issue for Australian NGOs and practical action to fast track innovation in our sector.
