Join us to unpack the great social innovation work being done in the ACT. In this webinar, Andrew Mehrton, a senior executive in ACT government, illuminates us on the amazing social policy work being done, and its ripples on the ACT social change ecosystem.

He is a long serving member of the ACT public service with experience working across a range of economic, social and environment issues. This has included work on innovation policy in the ACT as part of the government’s business development strategies and, more recently, social reforms such as reducing harms associated with drug use and making Canberra a more welcoming and inclusive city for LGBTIQ+ people.
