We work with our Strategic and Community Partners to empower South Australia

Check out some of our previous collaborations below.


2021 Year in Review

We’re proud to support the South Australian community through partnerships with local organisations and events.

These partnerships not only reflect our values but also help us to create a better future for South Australia.

In 2021, our sponsorship program empowered many organisations to drive real outcomes for their communities.

 

 

Can:Do Group

Employees from SA Power Networks are being taught how to use Auslan through an online program developed in conjunction with Can:Do Group.

Both field and office staff can voluntarily take part in an online learning module, before having access to an app with visual reminders of relevant words and phrases related to the power industry and customer service.

The learning module and app were designed as part of SA Power Networks' partnership with the Can:Do Group, aimed to improve accessibility of essential services across South Australia.

 

 

International Women's Day

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #BreakTheBias – where we are all being asked to consider what we can do as individuals and as a collective to make the world gender equal.

The International Women’s Day website states:

Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias

 

 

Sammy D Foundation

The Sammy D foundation is making a positive impact through their Monkey See, Monkey Do program.

The program educates junior players on the consequences of violence both on and off the field, as well as adult club members on the impacts of inappropriate sideline behaviours and the benefits of being a positive role model.

We are proud to empower the important work of the Monkey See, Monkey do program.

 

 

Australian Dance Theatre

SA Power Networks have partnered with South Australian dance company Australian Dance Theatre for a number of years now. One of the things both of our organisations share is an interest in is keeping our people well and healthy.

Recently some of the dancers at Australian Dance Theatre prepared some short wellness breaks for SA Power Networks staff to try meditation, yoga and an energizing warm-up.

In this video Chris from ADT takes us through a 5-minute meditation break which can be done at any time whether in the workplace or home office.

 

 

Adelaide United

To coincide with International Women's Day, members of the Adelaide United Women's squad met with some SA Power Networks employees to talk about gender, challenges and teamwork in their chosen career fields.

The video of their discussion was filmed by Flinders University student film maker Laura Chigwidden, and was shown at a Women in Business Breakfast hosted by SA Power Networks.

 

Australia Day Council of South Australia

For the past four years, we have proudly supported the Open Circle Discussion Group who works with the Australia Day Council of South Australia to ensure Aboriginal peoples’ voices and engagement with Australia Day in SA is given prominence.

Australia Day 2022 started with a moving Smoking Ceremony, hosted by senior Kaurna leaders on Kaurna land at Elder Park/Tarntanya Wama.

Our own Paul Sumner (Ngarrindjeri) was officially involved in the Smoking Ceremony along with his daughter Mia, who helped to stoke the fires.
