POSTPONED RA Single Table Luncheon with Shannon Fentiman (Brisbane)

06/12/2018 12:00 to 06/12/2018 14:30

Venue: Malt Dining

Due to the bushfires ravaging Queensland, the Diversity Single Table with Minister Shannon Fentiman originally scheduled for Thursday 6 December has been postponed, as she is travelling north to support disaster-affected communities.

This event will be moved to late January 2019 and we will update you with the new date ASAP.


Queensland Minister for Employment, Training and Skills Development, Shannon Fentiman, joins us for a discussion on the diversity initiatives being implemented and considered by the government to address capacity, training and skills constraints in the construction sector.  

This will cover strategies related to increasing indigenous workforce participation as well as business participation, increasing gender diversity and supporting people from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
