Respect and Inclusion
Wednesday, 25 August, 12:30pm – 2:30pm

Fostering Respect and Inclusion in the Construction Industry

Throughout history, crisis has served as a catalyst for change. In 2020, a global pandemic dramatically accelerated the use of workplace flexibility—in all its forms. This year, workplace culture took centre stage when allegations of impropriety in our nation’s capital prompted a 100,000-strong March for Justice.  The question is, will we leverage this crisis to prioritise the shift to safer, more respectful companies and communities?

Join us for an honest and open discussion around the benefits and enablers to creating inclusive workplaces, and the courageous conversations required to overcome entrenched personal, cultural, and systemic challenges.
