An ability to bring people together, and possibly a background working in politics, has seen Krystian Seibert become a key player in the growth of Australia’s culture of giving. Seibert is this week’s Changemaker.
Policy and Research Manager at Philanthropy Australia, Krystian Seibert joined the sector after helping set up the national charity regulator, the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), while working as an adviser to the former Assistant Treasurer, David Bradbury.
A graduate from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and Deakin University in Melbourne, Seibert is also a board member of Mental Health First Aid Australia.
In this week’s Changemaker column Seibert shares what drove him to join the Not for Profit sector and what inspires him to work to create a better world.
In conversation with Nicole Richards at the Philanthropy Meets Parliament Summit, Daniel Lee shared his insights on topics including the role of philanthropy as a driver of systems change which addresses root causes of social challenges, the relationship between philanthropy and government and what the new political environment in the United States means for philanthropy.
