Karen Mahlab is well known to many in the third sector. Pro Bono Australia, is a gateway to the dynamic Social Economy; that place where all sectors - business, government and community, converge to collaborate and create value for our common good.
Pro Bono Australia was established formally in 1998 when Karen was inspired by the possibilities of emerging information technologies. The community is vibrant and diverse. It spans sectors, organisations and individuals. It embraces volunteers, not-for-profits, charities, changemakers, social enterprises, investors and philanthropy as well as government and business.
The mission is to reflect, connect and enable key players in this highly-networked world and enrich this “for-purpose” social economy. The role is to inform and connect the right people, deepen understanding and capability and help drive sustainable change. This is done through specialist News Services, events, webinars, publications, directories, surveys, and media collaborations.
Their digital leadership, pioneered over 15 years, gives them unique reach, responsiveness and an ability to take society’s pulse on issues that matter. This digital footprint is globally unique and fast growing.
With Karen leading, they have built credibility as a hub, a voice and a catalyst for change through hard work, sheer determination and through their ability to collaborate.
