It can be hard to make change in complex systems. We know this from first-hand experience. That's why CEI looks to form long-term collaborations with our partners

CEI works with many kinds of organisations, from large global NGOs to local not-for-profits and Aboriginal Community-Controlled Organisations, from city governments to Prime Minister's teams, from individual philanthropists to established institutional foundations.

We prioritise collaboration to deliver meaningful change, building partners' capacity to respond to complex challenges in using evidence well. Our partners include:
