ACS Canberra is hosting a Diversity & Inclusion event to promote diversity, culture & leadership, as part of International Women's Day celebration at the National Portrait Gallery on Tuesday 5 March 2019.

We aim to provide an opportunity for members and guests to hear the latest on leading practices which drive diversity and inclusion, specifically focusing on addressing “unconscious bias”.

Diversity means difference, it means we are different from each other and inclusion means our ability to include difference.”

This panel discussion will be moderated by Yohan Ramasundara, President of ACS and our speakers include:

  • Libby Lyons, Director of the Workplace Gender Equality Agency 
  • Clare Moore, CEO of Women with Disability ACT
  • Francis Owusu, Cultural change communicator. Social Entrepreneur. People Empowerment
  • Lily Viertmann, CFO of ABS. Finalist in the 2012 ACT Telstra Business Women’s Awards. Who, recently won the title of “Champion of Flexible Work” on behalf of the ABS

We encourage everyone to get involved in the discussion and share experiences on how we can embrace Diversity to drive balance and create a better world. 

This panel discussion is open to the wider professional community in Canberra.
