After almost 6 years as a board director of TACSI we are sad to be saying farewell to Stacey Thomas. Stacey brought experience and passion to her role on the board, and was an intrinsic partner and advocate for TACSI’s on the ground work in community health and wellbeing.
While Ms Thomas is leaving a more behind the scenes role, she will remain a part of the TACSI family as CEO of Fay Fuller Foundation. Fay Fuller Foundation are committed to funding initiatives that add to or improve the health-related outcomes of South Australians over the long-term focusing on the three pillars of health, physical, mental and social well-being.
For Stacey: “It has been an absolute privilege to be a part of the TACSI team via the board for almost six years. As the Fay Fuller Foundation continues to grow and develop its approach to improving complex health problems, I look forward to drawing on the wonderful innovation insights and work from TACSI.”
We are also sadly farewelling Senior Social Innovator Ione Ardiaz Osacar from our Sydney team. After just over 3 years, Ione is leaving us to return to her beloved Basque country. Ione worked on so many of our core projects from Family by Family and Weavers through to building the Regional innovators Network with the Sydney team and bringing Social Innovation to country NSW. Ione’s smile and embracing of Australian surf culture will be sorely missed but we wish her well on her international journeys.
