Today is International Women’s Day. We are proud to be driving change within our organisation, with inclusion and diversity at the forefront of our business strategy.
Employees at our Head Office in West Ryde gathered to take part in the global celebration, with guest speaker Matthew (Matt) O’Sullivan – Chief Operating Officer, GenerationOne.
Matt is nationally recognised in the field of Vocational Training and Employment for Indigenous Australians. Through GenerationOne, Matt has developed the Vocational Training and Employment Centre (VTEC) model which has now placed over 5,000 disadvantaged Indigenous job seekers into work.
Matt spoke on the benefits of a diverse workplace, discussing how imperative the presence of both men and women is to business’s success. He offered insights on shifting the culture and mindset in traditionally male orientated industries, and strategies for creating a more gender and culturally inclusive world.
Nationally, employees championed a #BeBoldForChange campaign online, pledging their support and bold actions to help drive gender parity.
At SNP, we strive to provide opportunities for all employees regardless of their nationality and gender. Our #ConnectedWomen program represents SNP’s commitment to supporting and nurturing a cultural environment where both men and women can voice their opinions freely and celebrate each other’s achievements.
