ROUND TABLE 2 - COLLECTIVE IMPACT
The opportunities offered and outcomes achieved by Australia’s education system are far from fairly and evenly distributed. Skyline focuses on those who are gifted and talented and are at serious risk of not developing their academic and leadership potential due to constraints arising from disadvantage. Other organisations have a different focus, with a common thread that we all seek to break the inescapable link between social and economic inequity and educational outcomes.
Skyline brought together people from a diverse range of organisations working in education to share their work, identify common purposes and map out the possibilities of joining forces in strategies to combat educational disadvantage. The event was convened by Dr Elizabeth Hartnell-Young (Board member) and facilitated by Dr Dahle Suggett (Patron).
The round table was an opportunity to expand our understanding of the issues and to identify opportunities for alignment among our respective programs to maximise our collective impact.
