"Growing the Queensland Economy by Infrastructure and Innovation"
When: Friday 11 November
Time: 11.45 - 2pm
Where: Pullman Brisbane
Infrastructure and Innovation Combined
These three world leading Queensland companies serve 50 million customers, employ 40,000 FTE staff, and add billions to the State Domestic Product every year. We constantly hear about governments investing in 'infrastructure' - but what infrastructure? These three Queensland companies with a majority of private investment show that by combining innovation with extensive infrastructure investment we can create much more. The flow on employment effects and the provisions of goods and services benefit the whole economy.
How do they do it? What can you learn? How can you be a part of this?

AmCham UQ Business School Luncheon
"Why is gender equality important? What difference does it make?"
The aim of gender equality in the workplace is to achieve broadly equal outcomes for women and men, not exactly the same outcome for all individuals. Achieving gender equality is important for workplaces not only because it is ‘fair’ and ‘the right thing to do’, it is also vitally important to the bottom line of a business and the productivity of our nation.
