Join Meanjin editor Jonathan Green and historian, author and former Meanjin editor Jim Davidson when they discuss ‘Letters to the Editor’ a reflection on correspondence from the University collection and a portrait of Meanjin’s founding 30-year editor, Clem Christesen.
80 Years of Meanjin is a collaboration between Archives and Special Collections and Meanjin, using our collection of Meanjin material to celebrate the literary magazine’s 80th year. Our program of events will contain four panel discussions or online events throughout the year covering great cover art, letters to the editor, Australian cultural identity as pursued through the pages of Meanjin, and poetry.
The Victorian Gender Equality Act 2020 will come into effect on 31 March 2021. It’s the first of its kind in Australia. The Act sets requirements for the Victorian public sector, local councils and universities, to take positive action towards workplace gender equality. Under the Act, these agencies will be required to explicitly consider and promote gender equality in their policies, programs and services. It also establishes a Public Sector Gender Equality Commissioner.
Our expert panel including Victoria’s first Gender Equality Commissioner, Dr Niki Vincent, Victorian Public Service Commissioner Adam Fennessy PSM, Lara Olsen, Managing Director, South East Water and Professor Andrew Western from the University of Melbourne will discuss what the Act means for the water sector, how it will affect the way that we work and the outcomes it seeks to achieve.
