COVID-19 Impacts on the Not-For-Profit Sector: Leveraging Data Assets for Resilience

This webinar will address the emergent challenges for the governance and accountability of NFPs in a pandemic crisis, and discuss how NFP organisational resilience can be supported

COVID-19 pandemic has put Australian charities and not-for-profit (NFP) entities at severe risk. Donor fatigue, government funding cuts, volunteer shortages due to social distancing policies, and more have led to breakages in human service supply chains, undermining organisational sustainability and service delivery to millions of people who depend on them.

This webinar will address the emergent challenges for the governance and accountability of NFPs in a pandemic crisis, and discuss how NFP organisational resilience can be supported, including 

  • leveraging data assets for business model and public policy innovations
  • building technology-enhanced service supply chains
  • accountability to service quality, and
  • role of social enterprises for bridging the gap between affordability and service demand

Panel Speakers

  • David Gilchrist, University of Western Australia 
  • Vinita Godinho, Financial Resilience Australia 
  • Mel Yates, Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC)
