Dr Ruth Knight was challenged when she was just 18 years old and visited the slums in India. That experience has led her to spend over 30 years working to create social change in the UK and Australia.

Her research has led her to discover that we can all choose to challenge poverty, homelessness and injustice, and while we often think charities are the best organisations to do this, today some of the biggest social challenges in our communities are being met by business and social enterprises.

These days Ruth spends a lot of time at QUT’s Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies with students, educators and researchers who are pushing boundaries and facilitating real-world solutions to wicked problems.
