The ‘S’ in ESG

We’d like to invite you to join us at an exciting event – The ‘S’ in ESG.

When: Thursday, 8 June 2023

Time: 3pm – 5pm

Where: Holding Redlich , Level 8/555 Bourke St, Melbourne VIC 3000

As the world becomes increasingly aware of the importance of sustainable business and investing, it’s crucial to focus on the ‘S’ in ESG: the social aspect.

We will hear a keynote address from Siobhan Henderson – Strategy & Impact Manager, Australian Unity who will dive in key considerations for organisations including dealing with social trends, labour, and politics, and the challenges associated with measuring and reporting on social impact.

The following panellists will then join Siobhan:

· Dr Catherine Brown OAM – CEO, Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation

· Clare Gleghorn – Managing Director, Bastion Reputation

· Shaun Whittaker – Partner, Melbourne, Holding Redlich

Panellists will discuss the need for organisations to accurately measure their social impact on areas of the organisation as well as the broader community. The event will also focus on the challenges associated with social impact reporting such as a lack of standardization and agreed metrics, difficulty in measuring social impact, lack of transparency and greenwashing or “social washing”.

This event will provide a valuable platform for discussion, learning, and networking with other members of Committee for Melbourne.
