Emma Tomkinson

Claremont, Western Australia

Social impact analyst

A mathematician, former teacher, statistician and social impact analyst with a Masters in Operational Research from the London School of Economics, Emma is interested in social impact measurement for developing evidence-based policy. While living in London, Emma created the Social Impact Bond Knowledge Box for the Centre for Social Impact Bonds at the UK Cabinet Office. On her return to Perth, she established Community Insight Australia – a social enterprise that collates and maps publicly-available social data and presents it in an easy-to-read report. Emma is using her grant to share the tool with more non-profits so they can tailor effective services.
