Around our PLAce Creating a place for women in the parks and recreation industry. PRESENTATION

WOW WOW WOW...if you missed this fantastic panel discussion you can watch it here

What an inspiring conversation we had this morning.  A huge thank you to all our panel, Rachel Thorpe, Kristin Davies, Claire Beattie and Emma Lowe; and our host, Heather Nesbitt.

Just some of the take away messages/thoughts from today:

  • Recognise the barriers
  • Policy should be done with people not to them
  • We have to walk together to create good policy
  • Co-design
  • Diversity of thought
  • Treating everyone equally doesn't mean equity
  • Equity doesn't mean justice
  • We are the change
  • Legacy leadership
  • Empower you self
  • Be authentic
  • Be a champion of change
  • Provide support at all levels
These are just a small snapshot of the conversation.  Parks and Leisure Australia is committed to being a champion of change. Part of this is the establishment of the Women in Parks and Recreation Network, which will be launched at the National Conference in November.
