Be confident. Back yourself. Your diversity is an asset, your community mindedness is an asset, your courage is an asset.” 

– Justice Nola Karapanagiotidis

Are employers missing out on talent falling between the cracks of the system? What type of adjustments do we need to make in the recruitment process and in our workplaces?

 Research and data talk about the significant impact of the pandemic on women who are seemingly withdrawing from employment – especially women over 45 years of age. For those from a diverse cultural and linguistic background the road to securing a job comes with additional barriers.

On International Women’s Day, Jobsbank took part in a panel hosted by the Hellenic Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, featuring

  • Viv Nguyen, VMC Chair
  • County Court Judge Nola Karapanagiotidis
  • Corinne Proske, Jobsbank CEO
  • Fotini Kypraios, HACCI Chair & Prisma Legal Founder

It was such a compelling conversation, we chose it to launch our new video series.

“We have a really diverse team. Some days it’s magic. Some days there is a bit of friction. Difference causes friction but that also causes innovation.” – Corinne Proske, Jobsbank CEO
