Power to Persuade Symposium
UNSW Sydney campus
Big Data and Small Government: The Future of Social Services
The Power to Persuade symposium started with a simple idea: that the best way to start breaking down the barriers between the various groups involved in social policy was to put everyone in the same room.
Held annually since 2012, the symposium provides an opportunity for frank and open dialogue between public servants, academics and the community sector. These three groups of professionals are almost never brought together, so rarely have a chance to share the needs and challenges of their respective sectors.
By offering a diverse range of speakers and perspectives, the symposium provides an opportunity to share knowledge across sectors and explore more effective ways of working with each other.
