Launching Difference Makers

On 24th May, Bankwest kindly supported the launch of Difference Makers: A leader’s guide to championing diversity on boards.  This book is about re-framing the debate about who can participate in a board directorship so that differences are not seen as negatives but as positives. We share the latest research on diversity, Board Director profiles as well as our journey with the Engaging Young Leaders on Boards program.
We must thank Suzy Lou Photography for the wonderful event photography (see below) and Ellie Del Cashin for providing the live music during the evening.  Thank you to everyone who attended including our publisher, Lesley Williams from Major Street Publishing who flew over from Melbourne to attend.
You can buy your copy of the book here.  Alyceum is also providing thought provoking presentations and workshops for staff and Board Directors about the book themes – diversity, leadership and governance.
If you missed out on attending this event, Southcare has just announced they will be hosting an Evening with the Authors event on the Wednesday, 29th June. Watch out for registration details coming very soon.
