    Event description

    Impact100 Sydney is kicking off again for its 8th consecutive year!  We invite you to join us as we celebrate the launch of our new donor campaign. Come along to learn more about our mission to transform our community through collective giving, meet with like-minded people, and hear from our panel of leading experts as the tackle the social and economic challenges facing Sydney.

    Sydney’s persistent issues are worse than ever, including housing affordability, rising homelessness, and the ever-rising cost of living.  Racism and discrimination continue to be significant social problems in Australia, impacting individuals and communities from diverse cultural backgrounds. Suicide remains the leading cause of death among young Australians.

    We've asked our experts to help us reimagine the Sydney we want to see and look at where the best philanthropic investments can be made to make Sydney more equitable.

    Our panel will be facilitated by Sharon Levy, Partner at Bartier Perry and Founding Chair of The Haven – Nepean Women’s Shelter.  Sharon has over 20 years’ experience in general commercial disputes, and a particular expertise in building and construction. Sharon is also the Founding Chair of The Haven – Nepean Women’s Shelter, a not-for-profit organisation focused on supporting women through domestic violence and homelessness in Western Sydney. Sharon volunteers her skills and time with the Shelter and her community in undertaking this valuable work.  The Haven was also the recipient of one of 2023 Impact100 Sydney Grants!
