Supporting Diversity in the Facilities Management Industry

It might be a bit late but it is still good news!  Reduxo's Leanne Cluley who co-chairs the Facilities Management Association (FMA) Diversity Portfolio Group attended the FMA's annual conference Ideaction in Cairns in May this year.

With an exciting array of speakers and the networking at the social functions, it was again a great conference.  Well done to the FMA!

At the annual dinner, the Diversity Portfolio Group was awarded committee of the year, whilst it was a surprise it was recognition for the hard work and dedication by it's members.

Leanne said "Whilst my original passion and reason for joining the DPG was gender based around the lack of females in our industry, it is now so much more.  With the launch of the Indigenous Strategy at Ideaction this year, diversity has evolved to include culture, disability and more.  It is great for all the team to be recognised for what is a volunteer role, we were thrilled to win."

The DPG is focused on recognising diversity leadership and participation that promotes best practice and encourages innovation within the industry, whilst respecting and appreciating differences in ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, education and religion.
