by CSIRO, National Measurement Institute, ANSTO, and the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science

This event is jointly organised by CSIRO, the National Measurement Institute (NMI), ANSTO, and the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science (DIIS), to inspire and challenge approaches to diversity and inclusion in the sciences. The aim is to raise awareness of how agencies are using best practice to drive cultural change to promote diversity and inclusion, engage with agency leaders on the challenges in driving this change and help participants identify everyday ways in which they can make a difference and help agencies thrive.

The event is open to interested staff from across Australia's science agencies. Please be advised that the Lehany Theatre has limited seating so early registration is encouraged.
