"Equity Economics provided solid economic and policy advice to assist our organisation in producing a well researched and well written submission. We were particularly grateful for Equity's collaborative approach, which enabled our team to go through the process with them, building internal capacity and experience."
Bronwyn Lee, Director of Engagement, Foundation for Young Australians
"Equity Economics have a unique ability to combine technical economic analysis with policy expertise and a capacity to influence the policy agenda."
Sam Crosby, Executive Director, The McKell Institute
"Equity Economics researched a ground-breaking report on innovative policy solutions to the housing affordability crisis in Australia for Habitat for Humanity Australia. The report not only gained national media coverage but has been a catalyst for us to engage with State and Federal Government. Their economic expertise, coupled with a deep understanding of policy making proved to be an asset to us in this process."
Martin Thomas, CEO Habitat for Humanity Australia
"Equity Economics rapidly developed a high quality paper, arming us with robust figures to argue the case for inclusive growth right before the leaders' summit."
Tim Costello, Co-Chair C20 and CEO of World Vision Australia
“Recently, over 350 global civil society representatives came come together for the C20 Summit to determine the policy issues and solutions civil society wants to see on the G20 agenda when leaders meet in Brisbane in November. As our Summit Master of Ceremonies, Amanda held together the two-day Summit program, which combined lively audience interaction with panel discussions and a number of key note speakers. It developed a communique for which we sought our delegates’ buy-in. This process required careful stewardship and Amanda’s calm and steady approach helped guide the means for audience participation. Her ability to adapt seamlessly to unforseen changes to the program meant our audience remained informed and included. I would have no hesitation in calling again on Amanda’s leadership and communications for such events in the future.”
Joanne Yates, C20 Sherpa (Civil Society 20) for Australia’s hosting of the 2014 G20
“Amanda was very easy to work with, and quick to understand our organisation’s mission and needs. Her approach was flexible and delivered a stronger project than I could have imagined before we engaged her.”
Matt Levey, Director of Campaigns and Communications, CHOICE
“The clear, honest and very well-informed advice Oxfam received from Equity Economics was invaluable. Oxfam works with Government to achieve changes at a local and global level to make the world a fairer and more just place and hopefully end poverty. Its a big mission and, as a non-profit that runs on the smell of an oily rag, we cannot afford to be un-strategic in our investments. Equity economics gave us the frank assessment and expert advice that has shown us where and when we best invest our time and energy working with government. There is the official public process and then there is how things actually work. This is the information you can only get from real government insiders like Equity Economics and, with the benefit of their experience, we are now better placed to achieve our goals.”
