2018 IPAA WA Espresso Series: Session 1

From global to local: embedding diversity as a competitive and personal advantage

Events - 4 Sep 2018

Delegates heard the perspectives of a global organisation on how to bring diversity to the core of your practice and that of your team or organisation. The sheer scale of the public sector can make change difficult. South 32 as a global organisation can provide many useful lessons for overcoming the obstacles and realising the benefits of inclusive leadership.
