We hope you were able to join us for our first online event that was dedicated to education in Australia and New Zealand. We had so much to talk about on the day, and it was great to see so many leading education experts come together to share their thoughts. We had a jam-packed line up with sessions covering literacy, STEM and much more. If you missed the event you can catch it on demand - check out the links at the end of this blog.
Recently, we hosted our first ever Festival of Workplace Inclusion. On this day, 26 speakers joined together to explore how we can create a better working world for those of us who think, work and learn differently.

Our speakers shared some great advice around each theme. Below, we highlight 11 key takeaways from the event.
