Social and sustainable procurement continues to be a topic of considerable interest, judging from the fantastic turn out at our information session, held in Melbourne on Wednesday 8 May.
More than 50 people from both the private and public sectors listened intently to our three speakers:
- Mia Director Deirdre Diamante, who provided an overview of Victoria’s Social Procurement Framework and what it means for suppliers
- Fiona Sergi from Sustainability Victoria, who provided deeper insight into the three sustainability objectives of the framework, and
- Jo Tabit from the Brotherhood of St Laurence, who talked about her organisation’s Given the Chance employment model and program – an inspiring example of how social procurement can work in the real world.
