Dr Ingrid wins 10th annual IPAA award

Eight innovative and inspiring public programs, initiatives and services were recognised as the best in the public sector at the 10th IPAA Victoria Leadership in the Public-Sector Awards held in Victoria last week.

With 85 nominations received for the awards, TACSI are proud to have Dr Ingrid Burkett’s design and foundational work with GROW (G21) acknowledged with GROW winning the Policy Development Award.

GROW is a joint regional initiative between Give Where You Live Foundation and G21 – Geelong Region Alliance.

As a Collective Impact initiative, GROW collaborates with business, government, community organisations and individuals to work together to address disadvantage in areas of high unemployment (including Colac, Norlane/Corio and Whittington). It is a unique regional strategy which focuses on one of the key features of place-based disadvantage – joblessness.
