What we believe in

Corporate Social Responsibility

Our companies support a range of not-for-profit organisations working in education, health, the environment and human rights.

We make a positive contribution through pro-bono work, charitable donations, volunteering and by negotiating free media space for charity campaigns.
 
Pro-bono work ranges from small one-off campaigns to major long-term partnerships. Often our pro-bono clients are selected by employees, reflecting their interests and priorities.

R U OK?

Our CEO, Mike Connaghan is the Board Chair of R U OK?.

R U OK? started in 2009 by the late Gavin Larkin, a senior leader at STW. In 1995, Gavin’s father Barry took his own life.
 
Gavin chose to do something to bring about meaningful change. He decided to champion just one question to honour his father and to try and protect other families from the same pain. From this question, R U OK? was born, spearheaded by Gavin's expertise, leadership and passion.
 
The STW Group has been an instrumental partner from day one, providing creative and media expertise, and lots of pro-bono support. Gavin passionately advocated that a conversation could change a life, even as cancer ended his in 2011. In honour of Gavin and all families who have lost a loved one to suicide, our support of R U OK? continues to this day.
