Aspiring Women

Aspiring Women gives female employees a structured and safe space to take a fresh look at where they are and where they want to be: maybe thinking about promotion, or gaining more qualifications. Perhaps there has been a lot of organisational change and they need time to regroup and deal with their feelings? Or maybe they need to look at work/home balance and improving relationships and leisure time? It is personal development so looks at all aspects of life, work and home and it has been carefully developed by Samantha who has years of experience in developing women. There are no role plays, nothing embarrassing or forced or embarrassingly ‘pop psychology’. It is a mix of straight theoretical input, group discussion, time to think, and self-analysis activities, all designed to bring out the best in female employees, at work and at home, with the guidance of an experienced Psychologist and Coach.

Date: Thursday 4th December 2014
Time: 9:00 am registration opens, 9:30 am – 1:00 pm (morning tea provided)
Venue:

Level 2, Room 1, Flinders University Building, 182 Victoria Square, Adelaide

IPAA Professional Standards

IPAA is developing professional capability standards to encourage the development of high quality, capable and professional public servants. The use of these capability standards should contribute to improved value for money for government businesses, higher quality and consistent public sector performance, and enhance the careers of those working at the professional level within the public sector.

The standards are intended to articulate seamlessly with current and future public sector frameworks at the National, State, Territory and Local government levels. In developing each standard, IPAA has collaborated with interested relevant public sector agencies, not for profit professional bodies, and organisation in the private, Tertiary and VET sector.
