'Flex is the New Norm' Webinar

Published on May 03. 2022

‘Flexibility means different things to different people, and at different stages of life’ – a key takeaway from our webinar ‘Flex is the new norm’.   

A big thank you to our panellists – Zed Ivankovic, Chief Corporate Affairs Officer at Toll Group, Alana Newbrook, CEO at SYSTRA ANZ and Steven Tolley General Manager, Infrastructure NSW and ACT John Holland.   

Zed, Alana and John shared insights on flexible work arrangements and outlined their efforts to find balance within their own organisations. They also shared their own personal experiences of flexible work. The webinar was well received, with around 80 people attending from all over Australia, as well as from New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa.  

In the discussion, our panellists took a close look at how flexibility can improve work culture in the transport industry and get more women into transport. They also discussed the key challenges the industry has faced through COVID.   

We’re aiming to keep this discussion going and work through the challenges as a community.   

As part of the National Women in Transport initiative, the National Transport Commission is hosting a series of free ‘Dial up the change’ webinars. Our aim is to provide a platform for experts and leaders to share and discuss ideas and strategies to achieve the change we want to see in our industry. Keep an eye out for our next webinar with a new topic and panellists.
