Roads Australia Event Details

RA Leadership on Diversity Forum with John Merritt (Melbourne)

22/05/2017 09:00 to 22/05/2017 14:30

Venue: Cargo Hall, 39 South Wharf Promenade, South Wharf

Roads Australia has flagged workplace diversity as a major challenge and opportunity for industry, and one of our priority policy areas for 2017.

Our half-day Leadership Forum on Diversity will look at what industry and government are doing in Victoria to advance the cause.

  • What's the business case?
  • What are we doing right and where are we falling short?
  • Are we on track to achieve significant improvements over the next decade or so? If not, why not?

We're bringing together a range of industry and government leaders to dissect these questions, including our lunch speaker, VicRoads CEO, John Merritt; The Head of Transport for Victoria, Gillian Miles; Director of the Federal Government's Workplace Gender Equality Agency, Libby Lyons; CEO of Urban Infrastructure at Broadspectrum and Chair of RA's Diversity Committee, Sandra Dodds;  Senior Vice President and GM - Buildings and Infrastructure, Asia Pacific at Jacobs, Patrick Hill; and CEO of Pacific Services Group Holdings, Mark Coleman.

This is a unique opportunity to hear from some of our industry leaders and share your own experiences on this important topic.
