I thought this new Pozible fund-raiser for a not-for-profit magazine that plans to profile social enterprises may be of interest to some Croakey readers.
The founder John Hancock has provided this blurb:
This sector is also known as ‘social enterprise’, in which health is a significant factor.
I have over a decade’s experience in media, from running a newspaper to addressing conferences and advising newspaper and magazine publishers around the world about best media practice and technologies.
I am about to step down from my CEO role with EzyMedia to work full-time on The Elephant. I’ve been working in media for a while now, but my original background was in community services and social development.
The Elephant Magazine brings together my media skills and my passion for development. I was championing social enterprise models almost 20 years ago and I really believe now is an exciting time to return to this sector.
Besides being a much needed addition to the media landscape in general, the sweet spot here is that The Elephant Magazine will be written by its readers – that means you… and you!
For quick access, the magazine will have two ‘Tables of Content’, referencing by State/Territory and by Topic. Health will be a permanent topic section!
So, if you are interested in public health and the social determinants of health, equity etc… if you are involved with a health project that deserves some exposure, you might want to get in touch.
The magazine will launch this April and will be distributed to 5000 recipients across the country, including industry stakeholders, individuals, educational institutions, libraries and government.
