As ECOMS rolled into a new semester, many exciting events have already been held.
Despite the poor weather, hundreds of people lined up for tickets to our annual ECOMS Ball that was held on 25th August and was sponsored by Pitcher Partners. With 1,320 tickets selling out in a record 34 minutes, we feel a sense of achievement in continuing to organise such an anticipated event. With a Venetian Carnivale theme, the ball was bigger and better than ever.

Key recommendations are the establishment of a ‘Women's Leadership Development Unit' and the appointment of a government Minister solely responsible for women's leadership development.
It is well recognised that the nature and organisation of work is undergoing rapid and far reaching change and diversity. How employers and society deal with this diversity will be crucial for not only the success of government and businesses, but the implications for us as individuals.
