Manly, New South Wales

Public policy student, change agent

Shaun has a longstanding interest in social change. At university, he participated in international model UN conferences. On graduating, he travelled to Bolivia to help grow a conservation social enterprise in the Amazon. Through his subsequent strategy consultant role at Social Ventures Australia (SVA), Shaun has come to understand the structural challenges impeding the non-profit sector. His AMP Tomorrow Fund grant is helping to fund his Masters of Public Policy studies at the Harris School of the University of Chicago: “It will allow me to make a greater contribution towards advocating for crucial reforms that could transform the sector and our communities.”
