Whether you're toward the end of your degree, or wanting to figure out just what PLT entails, come along to our joint lunchtime information session. You will hear from The College of Law and Leo Cussen, two PLT providers in Melbourne, who will also be able to answer any questions you may have about the course and what is required to complete it.

In order to retain this less-formal approach, we have decided to run the event somewhat differently than other virtual Networking events you may have participated in this year!!

The topics for the evening are; - Overcoming imposter syndrome- How to actively support diversity in your workplace and challenge existing structures- Creating a sustainable career and mental wellbeing- Working internationally and with international issues- How to bring your passion to work or find balance…
