We were fortunate to be invited by Maurice Blackburn to attend the unveiling of the Fearless Girl statue which now stands defiantly in Federation Square. Melbourne now joins 3 other cities including the original in New York, Oslo and Cape Town. A great event also hosted by Hesta and CBUS, MC’d by the ubiquitous Liberty Sanger. The breakfast was attended by about 500+ people, several dignitaries and speakers including City of Melbourne’s Lord mayor, Sally Capp, the Minister for Women (VIC), Gabrielle Williams, Hesta’s CEO Debby Blakey, cbus CEO Davis Atkin and the US based artist, Kristen Visbal.
Gender equality was the topic of the morning, gender pay gap, super inequity saving for women, women retiring homeless, sexual harassment in the workplace, equal representation of gender in leadership roles, Board positions, the breaking down of gender stereotypes, the benefits of gender diversity and much more. If that doesn’t get you going on a Tuesday morning then nothing will. A massive congratulations goes out to the MB team who pulled off another amazing and thought-provoking event. #Mauriceblackburn #fearlessgirl
We certainly continued the debate that evening at the first of this years’ CTC’s which was fully subscribed within a week of invites going out so April’s event is already half full! Thanks to all who attended on Tuesday evening and thanks for the amazing feedback. These events are gaining in popularity earning a reputation for genuine and tailored networking. Can’t wait for the next group!! #CTC #Thebarre

A Word From The Temp Desk:
Temp has been busy over the past few weeks, as we have been getting out to visit all our working Temps to see how things are going with them and their roles. I love getting out to visit Temps, seeing what environments they are working in and how they are feeling about the role and the environment.
