Sandy Killick: Building capacity for social change – Using values and frames to increase your impact.
As a freelance facilitator Sandy Killick works with organisations, teams and individuals dealing with complex problems to find the new ways of thinking and action required. Sandy designs processes to help for-purpose organisations, government agencies, communities and influencers diagnose a problem, analyse the way the system needs to adapt and decide how to grow the new capacity required. As a member of the Common Cause Australia team, Sandy delivers workshops on how values and frames can help campaigners, community organisers and concerned citizens engage cultural values to create a more equitable, sustainable and democratic society. Find out how a values approach can help to build dialogues across the political spectrum by attending an intro workshop at Sustainable Futures 2017.
Sandy also delivers grassroots voter education workshops for the Women’s Electoral Lobby. The workshops cover knowing how to use your vote well, how to communicate with your parliamentary representatives and why it’s important (and fun) to be involved between elections.
Two frameworks underpin Sandy’s facilitation practice – adaptive leadership and resilience thinking. Sandy draws on her management, strategic planning, governance, social policy and research experience in government and for purpose sectors to diagnose systems.
Sandy particularly values equality and protecting the welfare of people and nature. She is a qualified mediator, holds Masters qualifications in Labour Law & Relations and Education Policy, is a Churchill Fellow and a Social Leadership Australia alumni. Most recently she has studied community organising with the Wellstone Foundation and values based communication with Common Cause Australia.
