Member Connect: attraction and retention in masculine industries

  • Anglo American 201 Charlotte Street Brisbane City, QLD, 4000 Australia (map)

Many industries across Australia continue to perpetuate a ‘blokey’ culture, posing ongoing questions for practitioners: how do we attract and retain a more diverse workforce in these environments? For women, LGBTI+ community, culturally diverse Australians and people who have an experience of ‘otherness’, what works in making masculine workplaces attractive? How do we help diverse candidates overcome perceived barriers to entry? How do we shift the culture to ensure we retain diverse recruits? We’ll consider these questions and more in this discussion.

This Member Connect event is in the format of a round table discussion, enabling everyone to share their stories, ask questions and contribute thinking the conversation. The DPA supports the continued development and connection of members on parental leave and working part time while caring for small children - this event will be child friendly.

This event is open to DPA Members only, members will be provided with a link to register online. To learn more about becoming a member of the DPA or to sign up online, click here.
