Cultural Diversity within the Insurance Industry
27 September, 17:15 - 20:30
235 St Georges Terrace, Perth WA 6000, Perth, Australia
Come and join us and hear from an inspirational insurance professional who will share her story as we celebrate Multiculturalism across Australia. Taste food from across several different countries and be inspired through a cultural dance and entertainment from Chinese performers.
One in four of Australia's 22 million people were born overseas; 46 per cent have at least one parent who was born overseas; and nearly 20 per cent of Australians speak a language other than English at home.
It is easy to acknowledge that Australia is a culturally diverse country, the question worth exploring is whether peers, managers or leaders in the insurance industry are un-consciously excluding those with a cultural background or not enabling an environment where all feel welcome.
Brought to you by NIBA WA, this is an evening not to be missed!
Proudly sponsored by Arthur J Gallagher and Hall & Wilcox.
