Advancing inclusion in the Victorian public sector: Infrastructure in focus

15 Feb 2024Deloitte


Explore the importance of fostering diversity and inclusion and how diverse perspectives contribute to better public outcomes


Are you passionate about creating more inclusive and equitable workplaces? Join us for a dynamic and enlightening discussion centred around the pivotal role of diversity and inclusion in shaping the future of public infrastructure and the built environment.

You will have the opportunity to hear from Victoria’s first public sector Gender Equality Commissioner Dr. Niki Vincent, who oversees the implementation of the Gender Equality Act 2020.

A panel discussion will then take place with distinguished public purpose sector leaders to explore how fostering inclusive workplaces can lead to improved public outcomes. Topics that will be covered include a focus on the realms of placemaking, social infrastructure, and property planning and delivery and how inclusive, diverse teams support diverse community outcomes.

This is a unique opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals, policymakers, and leaders who share a passion and interest for making a difference through fostering gender equality and inclusion.
