The second day of the BAP Leadership Day event was jam packed with brilliant speakers and presenters as well as interactive workshops and time for our members to network and socialise with the guests and the members of BAP Monash University.
Centred around the theme of Diversity and Inclusion, the day started off with a presentation from EY representatives Derek Li, Claudia Riseborough, & Kirsten Callander about D&I at EY. The morning session concluded with an Equality and Inclusion interactive workshop where Nick McGuigan, Lisa Powell and Alessandro Ghio got the members to create “Unboxing Videos”, expressing in a creative and hands-on way how diversity can be encouraged in teams.
A hearty lunch was catered for all attendees by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, followed by sessions about Neurodiversity by Andrew Eddy & Chris Turner and Supporting Indigenous Australians in the Workplace by Richard Hurst.
The last speaker session was a vibrant and interactive session about Gender Equality by Helen Babb which sparked lots of interesting conversations amongst members.
The day concluded with an informative panel with Elliot Batiste, Brent Patterson and Mangala Prasetia about the upcoming Best Practices and Project Run With It competitions coming up in the BAP calendar next year.
The committee members from BAP UniMelb as well as BAP Monash put many hours into this extremely successful and engaging event, and all members convey their gratitude to their hard work!
