Diversity & Inclusion Breakfast

Thursday 12th March 2020
Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre
7.00 am - 9.30 am


There is no doubt that diversity and inclusion in the workplace is now considered a C-level issue. Key leaders in Australia’s oil and gas sector will be amongst those pushing that message at AOG 2020. This powerful event will be an opportunity for the industry to connect, while supporting inclusive and diverse workplaces.

Topic: Bringing your whole self to work

The 2020 AOG Diversity & Inclusion Breakfast will explore the merits of bringing our whole selves to work – from individual and organisational perspectives.  The panel of industry specialists are set to share knowledge and insights around:

  • Recognising that we are all unique and individual – that we have multiple “identities” across work, home and play – and creating environments that respond inclusively.
  • Organisational and personal benefits or disadvantages of advocating for authenticity in the workplace.
  • The tactics that we can use to empower ourselves and our colleagues to feel safe in choosing to bring our whole selves to work?

“It’s inspiring to see diversity and inclusion becoming part of the cultural DNA of so many of our major employers.

Clearly there’s still a long way to go – my chosen profession, for example, MEDIA, among those frequently called upon to better represent the many distinct voices and attitudes in our community. I’d like to think that genuine progress is being made on that front.

More broadly though, my wish for true inclusivity in the workplace comes from a very personal place. As a parent of a child with Autism, I realise he has some challenges ahead but I look forward with increasing confidence to an environment where his unique cognitive abilities will be embraced and nurtured.”
