Event description

Description

Join business leaders and HR professionals from the not for profit sector for another interactive learning and networking session.

This time we are exploring why diversity matters within organisations with the help of guest speakers Adrian Munro and Christine Ross.

Over recent years many research studies in Australia and overseas have confirmed the benefits of employing a diverse workforce. McKinsey have found that a gender diverse organisation is 15% more likely to outperform its peers while a ethnically diverse organisation is 35% more likely to outperform its peers.

The majority of not for profit organisations are service driven and by reflecting the client base of your organisation in the people you employ you can help enable trust to be quickly established - an essential factor in an increasingly competitive sector with individualised funding arrangements.

Our speakers have a passion for diversity within their respective organisations and beyond. They have seen what fails to enable diversity and which elements can enable radical change to take place.
