GIS People Becomes a Multicultural Ambassador
GIS People are very proud to announce that we are a part of the Multicultural Queensland Ambassador Program. Being a part of this program is a powerful statement to our customers, staff members, stakeholders and potential customers alike that our organisation not only values but lives and breathes multiculturalism. We are a very multicultural bunch here at GIS People, as we employ staff who come from all parts of the world, including Bosnia and Hercegovina, China, South Africa, India, France, Germany, Vietnam, New Zealand, and of course Australians. We also have a ratio of around 40/60 for females to males, which is almost unheard of in the IT industry.
On the 10th of October, our founder, Igor Stjepanovic was invited to the Queensland Parliament House for a special reception to the inaugural Multicultural Ambassador program. Hosted by The Honourable Grace Grace MP, Minister for Employment and Industrial Relations, Minister for Racing and Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Igor was able to network with other fellow Ambassador representatives and hear from influential speakers alike. As on the picture above (from left to right), Igor had the opportunity to speak with:
- The Honourable Curtis Pitt MP, Treasurer, Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships and Minister for Sport
- The Honourable Yvette D’Ath, Attorney-General and Minister for Justice and Minister for Training and Skills
- The Honourable Jackie Trad, Deputy Premier, Minister for Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning and Minister for Trade and Investment
- The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk MP, Premier of Queensland and Minister for the Arts
GIS People are honoured to be a part of this program and are very excited to be a part of this program and look forward to achieving a real change in workplaces alike.
