Business Circle

On Friday 8th June, Elizabeth Shoesmith our CEO, and Scott Shoesmith one of our Advisors, were guests at the Trans-Tasman Business Circle Annual Aust/NZ Inclusion and Diversity Dialogue “Courageous Conversations” event in Sydney, Australia. The guest list was impressive and included Rt. Hon. Dame Jenny Shipley DNZM, Former Prime Minister of New Zealand and Commercial Director, Elizabeth Broderick AO, Former Commissioner, Sex Discrimination, and Michael Ebeid AM, CEO & Managing Director, SBS. Scott hosted a conversation on disability and exclusion, and Elizabeth hosted a conversation on labels being divisive. Sweeney Interpreting provided the Auslan interpreting services on the day (pictured). The conversations had were certainly courageous and participants from the day undoubtedly went home with a refreshed perspective on inclusion thanks to The Inclusive Foundation.
