As the days get brighter and the evenings stretch, the arrival of long weekends in many states provides an opportunity for the long sought after work life balance. In our October newsletter, we’re highlighting the importance of embracing diversity in our workplace ahead of the APS Diversity and Gender Equality Awards. Have you nominated someone or are you interested in coming along to the awards ceremony? It could be your agency that’s recognised for going above and beyond to foster inclusion, diversity and gender equality.

These programs at all levels give not only an opportunity to learn or relearn skills but most importantly the time and space to build important networks between participants.
