FUTURE LEADERS TALK
Hear the innovative new ideas of tomorrow's leaders. 2021's LGPro Emerging Leaders Program participants present:
DIVERSITY FOR DEMOCRACY
Have you ever noticed that Councillors are not always representative of the diverse communities they serve? Have you ever wondered how decision-making could be more inclusive, creating better outcomes for these communities?
A pitch for a pilot program from some of our brightest emerging leaders, Diversity for Democracy is set to change the face of Local Government. The program examines and addresses barriers faced by community members from a variety of diverse backgrounds in nominating for Council.
FLEXIBLE WORK FRAMEWORK
2020 changed work forever, in 2021 we learnt new ways of working, and 2022 will change it again. If you thought you had heard it all about flexible work, think again. Be part of the change and join the generation insisting flexible work is here to stay.
Hear from the emerging leaders who have thrown out the rule book that says 'bums on seats' means greater productivity and established the path for workplace flexibility that will attract and retain high-performing staff, changing the way we have always done things.
PANEL CONVERSATION: EMPLOYERS OF CHOICE
WHAT DOES LOCAL GOVERNMENT NEED TO CHANGE TO CREATE A SAFE, DIVERSE AND INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT?
The virtues and direct benefits of embracing diversity through an active campaign of inclusivity are by now entrenched in standard business practice. But is this really practiced? We explore the tangible steps local governments could be taking to offer true equity as employers of choice in their communities, and what barriers diverse groups are still facing in being part of their representative organisation, the local council.
SHORT TALKS, BIG IMPACTS
Hear from truly inspiring Australians in rapid-fire presentations that will leave you inspired in the true spirit of reigniting.
