Australia and New Zealand

RSA ANZ is a growing community of Fellows actively working to drive social change in Australia and New Zealand. We work creatively to bring together people, ideas and initiatives to open up new ways of addressing the challenges of our time.

Our activities range from targeted networking events to large scale symposiums with internationally renowned speakers. We also work collaboratively with key stakeholders in industry and government to deliver research and reports on topics such as the future of work, inclusive growth and citizen engagement.

In 2018, we will be exploring new networks and thematic groups to enable Fellows to collaborate on individual projects and events.
