Since 2006 Meg has worked in the international development partnerships space, at UNICEF and Plan International Australia. Curiosity drove Meg to explore how business and the development sector could work together to achieve shared outcomes – positive impact for the community while also ensuring a business was improving their bottom line. Working with global consulting firm Accenture, she reviewed how business could be involved in development. The study demonstrated new ways to partners with the business sector to achieve sustainable impact.
B4D was one of the first Australian organisations that tackled this fundamental question – what’s the role of business in development? In 2016, Meg joined the organisation to work in this exciting space. Each B4D team member adds a unique skill set – most of the team come from a business background whereas Meg’s lens adds an important perspective on what community development strategies can be applied to a development program.
