Hello Divers,

Things are getting busy for diversIT this week!

We've got a collaboration with ThoughtWorks and CCA happening this Wednesday (!) which you can check out down below... and our personal branding workshop with NAB is accepting expressions of interest. We're super excited to bring you these events - don't miss them!

Tip of the week, from Marcus: "If you need beautiful photos, no strings attached, unsplash.com is your new best friend. Professional photographers upload their work for commercial and non-commercial use, and you can use them however you like for free. (For one, I found some lovely wallpapers on there.)"

Until next week!

Cheers,
The diversIT Newsletter Team

WORKSHOPS & PROGRAMS

NAB x diversIT Personal Branding Workshop!

When someone Googles your name, what do they find? What do people say when you're not in the room? What differentiates your profile from that of your peers?

Today, good companies recognize that people work best when operating in their areas of strength and passion. Bloggers, artists and researchers have long recognized the value and benefits of branding themselves to reach their goals.

However, creating a personal brand can be a daunting task. One of the easiest ways to get lost in the process is not knowing where to start. 

Join us for a personal branding workshop with NAB and learn how to maximize your potential opportunities so that you can make the most out of your LinkedIn profiles.


We are currently accepting expression of interests for this workshop!
(Make sure you're logged into your Monash account or using incognito mode to access the form.)

Date: Tuesday 1st October, 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Location: Room 141, 19 Ancora Imparo Way, Monash University, Clayton


Note: For those who filled the form earlier last week, the room has changed from 132 to 141!
