Episode #20 - How fostering innovation creates stability in your culture

The Innovate For Impact podcast is for leaders in the social sector who want to create a more innovative and impactful organisation.  Each episode is jam packed with tips on how you can deliver more impact, and we bring you stories from other leaders in the sector that are making a difference.

In this episode, Tracey is joined by April Long, the acting CEO of Shine for kids, to discuss how innovation helped the organisation grow. April also discusses the work Shine for Kids supports children and families impacted by the criminal justice system.

Here’s a taste of what Tracey and April cover in the conversation:

  • Steps Shine for kids took to provide quality services during COVID.

  • Innovation is about creativity. It's about going back to old ways of doing things and adapting them to the new environment.

  • Shine for kids' approach to navigating the challenges they face.

  • What Shine for Kids does to ensure they receive meaningful feedback to improve their services.

  • Almost 70% of Aboriginal children and over 50% of all children currently sitting in youth prisons have had a parent in prison. Innovation can help break this cycle.

  • Things that the Shine for kids looks forward to next year.
