BEHIND THE SCENES

SARAH DAVIES AM
INAUGURAL DIRECTOR & CHAIR
An experienced and dedicated sector professional, Sarah Davies joins the board of the charity arm. She is committed to raising the profile of the systemic contributors of burnout among social changemakers and seeing new joined-up solutions emerge to advance the sector. In her day job, Sarah is Chief Executive Officer of Alannah and Madeleine Foundation. Sarah also serves on the board of Social Ventures Australia, and is the former CEO of Philanthropy Australia.
JULIA KEADY 
DIRECTOR / FOUNDER
Having experienced and observed wide-scale burnout in the social purpose sector over the last 15 years, Julia set up The Xfactor Collective as a dual entity social enterprise to provide support and services for changemakers to achieve their mission without burning out. Prior to running the Collective, Julia was the inaugural CEO of Australian Women Donors Network (now Australians Investing in Women), and ran her own consultancy from 2012-2019. She is as passionate about advancing women as she is about rural and regional Australia, and serves as Co-Chair with the Australian Centre for Rural Entrepreneurship (ACRE).
DR WENDY SCAIFE
INAUGURAL DIRECTOR
Few people can say they have worked, studied and taught philanthropy and fundraising for three decades. Wendy is one of the sector's quiet achievers and most fierce advocates, and joins the Collective mission to see collaboration, research and smart people unite in an worthwhile quest. Wendy is an Associate Professor and the Director of Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies (ACPNS) at Queensland University of Technology. Wendy is also the Social-Purpose Research Theme Leader at QUT’s Centre for Future Enterprise.
