ACT Workforce Impact Collective

The Workforce Impact Collective (WIC) initiative uses a Collective Impact approach. This brings together and supports individuals and organisations with diverse perspectives, insights and ideas to collectively develop a shared vision and agenda for action, to pilot innovative workplace and worker system reforms, and share the learning.

We invite you to become involved in exploring real solutions, ideas and activities that will bring about changes to the ACT Disability Workforce. The Workforce Impact Collective Pilot Funding Program gives you the opportunity to test innovative ideas and concepts to ultimately grow the capacity and capability of the workforce, thus improving the lives of those who live with a disability, their families and carers. The program is open to individuals, groups and organisations, but may also include collaborations between multiple parties. You are encouraged to talk to us about your ideas, however big or small they may be.
