Introduction to the Partner

The Australian Business and Community Network (ABCN) was formed in 2005 to create a new business led and funded organisation that educates, equips and challenges members to use their business skills and resources collaboratively for greater social impact, specifically in the area of education.

Through the ABCN partnerships to date, 34 companies have now worked with more than 180 schools from disadvantaged areas involving 35,000 students, 300 educators and over 10,000 company volunteers working in sustained programs. Over 30 global and national companies are members engaging their CEOs and staff in a wide variety of high outcome programs ranging from single events to sustained mentoring.

Members include the CEOs of KPMG, UBS, AmEx, E&Y, Optus, Goldman Sachs, PWC, Microsoft, Bain and Company, JPMorgan, Mallesons, Minters, Stockland, Investec, Wesfarmers, Deloitte, IAG, Citi and Blackmores.

The ABCN works in the area of education, to improve opportunities for disadvantaged students and schools, through mentoring, partnering and support programs and is working with schools throughout Australia.

The ABCN has received global and national recognition for business and school partnerships.

We have a deep passion for seeing really dynamic effective corporate responsibility all over the world - it's core to our values and central to our business. So being in from the start with CSR360 GPN was an obvious route for KPMG to help spread the energy and the opportunity for transformed communities where business plays its rightful role driving change and supporting the people and the places who are often forgotten and frequently in need of business engagement. Its our privilege to be involved.
