UQ power


Support Diversity



Newcastle and the Hunter Region are known for a great many things. However, Diversity and Inclusion in Business is not currently one of them.

Although there is discrimination laws it happens every day in corporate Australia. Primarily due to ignorance and lack of exposure to diverse work environments. We want to be able to pull down barriers in a constructive way to show corporates the advantages of diversity. We want to be able to support diverse humans in participating in the Economy.

The intent of the conference is to both provide an education, a connection and an experience. It's about connecting the community and creating a collective voice. We welcome any humans who are interested in learning, improving and sharing ideas, practices and strategies around their diversity and inclusion.

Our speakers have faced adversity, have lead inclusive businesses and specialise in diversity  strategies. We encourage you to come along, and share this event with other humans in your cicle.

The format of the day will include

  • A collection of keynote speakers, who will speak on gender, indigenous and disability topics.
  • A Q&A panel and
  • Newcastle Business Club Luncheon with Heidi Alexandra Pollard & Michelle Crawford as guest speakers. 

Hear from our speakers including
