When Action Aid, an international non-profit that works to fight poverty and injustice, needed research conducted for their campaign that helps women in metropolitan areas, it sought the assistance of Sydney organisation Social Impact Hub (SIH).

SIH works with businesses keen to make their mark in a positive way. The organisation provides research and consultancy services to not-for-profits and businesses seeking expert assistance. The work is conducted by students at the University of New South Wales, who undertake SIH as a subject as part of the business and law degrees. Students must apply to take this subject, and all work is overseen by experts.
