IPAA Victoria's Young Professionals Network (YIPAA) and the Graduate Recruit Alumni Society (GRAS) are pleased to announce an upcoming seminar: New Term, New Priorities - Key Economic and Social Priorities of the Victorian Government
This is a rare opportunity to meet senior leaders from across the Victorian Public Service including the Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Justice and Community Safety, the Department of Transport and the Victorian Managed Insurance Authority on key priorities of the re-elected Victorian Government such as mental health, crime prevention, transport and risk management.
Our four speakers will each discuss:
What are the key priorities of the re-elected Government?
What does this mean for organisational changes and key projects in the VPS?
What opportunities does that bring for public servants, and what skills do young professionals need?
After short presentations about the priorities and opportunities in their four agencies, you will also have the chance to discuss or ask questions about these portfolios, and how you can engage with them as a young professional.
The IPAA Young Professionals Network (YIPAA) is open to all personal members or corporate affiliates of IPAA Victoria aged under 36. Joining YIPAA provides opportunities to connect, learn and grow in a supportive community of young professionals from across the public purpose sector, and attend exciting events with access to senior public sector leaders.
