Innovation is a very well used word. Yet this does not lessen its importance to the human spirit, nor how it can propel us to remarkable achievements. The rise of “social innovation” offers Australia opportunities fornew approaches and tools for solving societal challenges – in ways we had not previously imagined.

Leading this social innovation is the ascendency of the social enterprise: entities that are as explicit in their social aims and accountability as they are committed to their commercial orientation.

Social enterprises are able to respond to deeply entrenched social issues with a unique level of freedom to the traditional boundaries established by the business, government and non-profit sectors. Social enterprises are providing Australia with:

- New models of operation - Opportunities for the scaling and replicating of best-in-class practice

Being part of this social evolution is exciting, rewarding and challenging.

Carol Schwartz will offer her insights on these developments, thoughts on where she believes she has had the most impact and reflections on what the future holds for social innovation in Australia.
