Event overview

Australia's future workforce requires new skills, collaboration and creativity. How can organisations leverage workforce diversity as a driver of high performance?

CEDA welcomes international speaker Janina Kugel, Chief Human Resources Officer and Member of the Global Managing Board at Siemens AG, together with Swinburne University of Technology Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Aleksander Subic and others to explore how business can thrive in the digital age through leadership and diversity.

We explore:

  • The economic benefits of diversity and how it can drive innovation and high-performing teams; and
  • How employers and educators can work together to create a more diverse talent pipeline.
