Working on Kaurna lands
As a Senior Social Innovator at TACSI, Philippa helps build relationships with people and organisations tackling the toughest social challenges. She participates in and leads the design, management and delivery of social innovation projects that make a positive change for communities and individuals.
Not one to shy away from delving into the tough conversations and asking questions that others may not be willing to ask, Philippa uses dialogue to challenge the status quo and bring about change. She recognises that her role at TACSI is to use her privilege to elevate the voices of others without power, and she strives to create a culture of curiosity in teams and give others the confidence to ask questions and challenge processes and ideas to make the biggest impact.
Having worked on the frontline supporting people with a living experience of mental ill-health on their recovery journey and managing large male suicide prevention projects, Philippa is passionate about human-centred design, and is endlessly optimistic about the possibility of positive social change.
When Philippa’s not at work, she loves to slow down, and be surrounded by greenery and birdsong, so you’ll often find her hiking and camping. She’s always on the lookout for the best local cheap eats from different cultures.
