Pip Bergin (she/her)

Social Innovator

Working on Kaurna Lands

Pip has been part of the TACSI team since early 2020. As a social innovator and network weaver, she works on big societal problems affecting our communities alongside our partners and the people who are most impacted by these challenges. 

Pip previously worked in the City of Adelaide Strategy & Design team and with the Australian Bureau of Statistics. She has a Masters of Social Science (Environment and Planning), which further sparked her interest in involving and engaging communities in decision-making.

Day-to-day, Pip plays a key role in the Fire to Flourish and Our Town initiatives, and is passionate about the impact that community-led social innovation has on shifting power, systems and mindsets. Possessing a deep empathy and a natural, easy approach with people, Pip seamlessly bounces from big picture to intricate detail. This allows her to hold the nitty gritty details of project management alongside the heart-led relational part of TACSI’s work; connecting people across networks who are leading the way to a better future for their community is one of her favourite parts of her job.

Endlessly curious with a strong desire to learn, Pip loves throwing herself into new experiences and situations. Pip always strives towards a future where people's hearts and minds shift from "that's how it's always been done" to "what if we...".  She loves working alongside incredible members of the community and learning from our partners and her colleagues, especially the gold nuggets of wisdom shared in yarns with Aunty Vickey

In her downtime, you’ll find Pip cooking, eating out, reading cookbooks – basically anything and everything to do with food.

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and Owners of the lands in which we work and live on across Australia. We pay our respects to Elders of the past, present and emerging. We are committed to collaboration that furthers self-determination and creates a better future for all.

At TACSI, diversity and inclusion is more than a statement; equality and accessibility are guiding principles embedded in everything we do. We strongly believe that it’s the collective sum of all our communities differences, life experiences, and knowledge that enables both ourselves and our partners to come together to tackle complex social issues. That’s why we’re committed to having a diverse team made up of people with diverse skills from all backgrounds, including First Nations peoples, LGBTIQ+, mature-age people, and people with visible and non-visible disabilities, regardless of sex, sexuality or gender identity.
