Flipped Uncon – Meet Jahna Cedar
Are you attending our next Unconvention on the 15 August about Disruption in the Boardroom?
In preparation for our next Unconvention on the 15 August, please find an interview with Jahna Cedar, Executive Officer at Gumala Aboriginal Corporation below. As with all our Unconventions, we try and find different ways of sharing and discussing information, and with Jahna we are using the flipped classroom methodology.
What is a flipped classroom?
The flipped classroom describes a reversal of traditional teaching where students gain first exposure to new material outside of class, usually via reading or lecture videos, and then class time is used to do the harder work of assimilating that knowledge through strategies such as problem-solving, discussion or debates.
Watch Jahna’s Interview before the Unconvention
If you would like to ask Jahna a question please post your question below in the comments section. Get ready at the Unconvention to discuss the themes, ask questions and get interactive!
Meet the Industry Innovators
We also have a number of Industry Innovators who will share their stories and examples of leading innovation at the Unconvention.
Peter Rossdeutscher, Non Executive Director, Strategic Advisor, Former Global CEO
A strong appreciation of collaboration and leveraging innovation is an important component for emerging leaders and Directors. I will discuss how some Boards that I am part of are leveraging startup thinking and incubation to develop new mindsets in youth entrepreneurship, social impact ventures and future leaders.
Fadzi Whande, Global Diversity and Inclusion Expert
I will share about the grant from the USA government building a more racially conscious law enforcement. This was a 12 month program where various law enforcement agencies participated in a program to examine discriminatory practises within law enforcement. As a result I was named a finalist for Australian Human Rights Racism it Stops with Me award.
Vincent Lam – Principal Consultant at illuminance
MSWA – service provider in the NDIS and Aged Care Reform environment and illuminance went on a journey together that can be showcased as an examples of innovation, how innovation is designed and implemented and how strategic partnerships support innovation.
Kathleen Burton, Social Enterprise Development Manager, Befriend Inc.
In response to a changing funding environment and steady organisational growth, Befriend has been on a journey to become a ‘true’ social enterprise. We’ve experimented with a number of new revenue streams, had some failures and unexpected successes and made some tough decisions to stay true to our mission and vision. In two years we’ve moved from being mostly grant-funded to mostly enterprise funded- hear about this journey of innovation.
Caris Jalla, Co-founder Care Collective
Care Collective was founded because we recognised the need for an independent place for information about disability services, supports, events and more under the new National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) world. Our online community is not a directory but a social network where members can list, follow, private message and discover supports with the outcomes of capacity building, information sharing and self-advocacy.
Claire Stokes, Centre for Social Impact
I’d like to share the story of facilitating innovation across systems and society through the Social Impact Festival and Impact Labs. These initiatives of the Centre for Social Impact UWA are unique, authentic, and purpose-designed for deep engagement, collaboration, and achieving positive social change.
Register for the Unconvention here. See you there!
