People and Culture host and supports a range of networking activities for all professional staff. Networking opportunities at Flinders allow staff to interact and support each other throughout their employment.
Some of the networks available for staff are:
TechNet SA - a network for staff of the three South Australian universities working in the practical application of science, engineering, health, and associated technological and support services, providing communication, information exchange and networking events locally. Participation in the annual TechNet Australia conference is supported by the Professional Development Unit.
Pride Network - designed to enhance University culture by creating a more welcoming and inclusive environment for members of the Flinders community who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, intersex, questioning and queer (GLBTTIQQ).
Maternity leaver's forum - biannual forums to explore issues impacting on pregnant or breastfeeding women or women returning to work from maternity leave. Everyone is welcome - men, women and supervisors.
Equal Opportunity contact officers - provide confidential support and information to staff involved in a complaint of discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment or bullying.
