The ACT HR Book Club Network Forum invites you to their new network forum!

These will be regular events that will be an inclusive space for HR professionals to come together to discuss relevant Human Resources literature and podcasts, to promote professional development.

Attendees will get to participate in discussion and critique of Human Resources topics and literature (books, articles or other written publications) and podcasts. This is a good opportunity to network with your ACT peers and maybe even find someone to collaborate with on workplace projects!

The following dates will be scheduled for this year:

23 July 2024
The Podcast being discussed at the July HR Book Club is from ABC listen- This Working Life podcast. The episode was broadcast on 10 May 2024 -What does it mean to have an ethical career? And why should you care? ‘When we have the privilege to choose what work we do, how do we ensure we’re ethically aligned with that career choice? And once we’re working in a job, how can we ensure we’re behaving ethically day to day?’

24 September 2024
The article being discussed at the September HR Book Club is Insights for Indigenous employment into a case study of unconscious bias in the Australian Public Service by C Lean. This article discusses unconscious bias in the Australian Public Service in conjunction with considering gender, age and length of service. The article also discusses a framework to ‘revisit the effectiveness of unconscious bias training for the APS’.

In preparation for attending: after listening/reading the ‘book’ of the month come prepared with any commentary that stood out to you and a question you might have about the topic or to gain others insight into an area.

Further dates with coinciding literature or podcasts, will be scheduled upon consultation of participants of the ACT book club’s first two sessions.

Numbers will be limited to ensure easy conversation in an online forum so please book early!
