WHAT DO WE ACTUALLY DO?
Acorn Network is focused on building awareness of the need to involve young professionals and highlight the opportunities for us all within the aged care industry.
Acorn Network is a frontline provider for these nurturing and connecting collaborative aged care networks. We work with emerging professionals, students, established leaders, leading organisations and the Australian public to build initiatives and promote opportunities that are needed, wanted, and sustainable. We believe more needs to be done for us all to meet other driven professionals in a youthful, fun, and leadership driven environments - such as running workshops, events, mentoring programs and presenting at conferences in Australia and internationally.
We want to support you to become the best leader and manager possible, it is the only way we can create collaborative workplaces for the future of aged care.
At the Acorn Network, our events are designed specifically with Generation Y in mind. We have events that they want, when they want it, in locations that are funky and fresh. Be it networking or workshops, we want to show the industry that young people are ready to be part of the future of aged care.
We need to create new ways of thinking and communicating if we are to inspire and engage our young leaders. Talk to us about youth initiatives that fit with your organisation's goals. Acorn Network is currently looking for organisations who are actively seeking new ways to engage young individuals, students, graduates, and emerging leaders.
Mentoring is something we all do. We find someone with more experience or knowledge in a certain area and learn from them. Be it a one-off coffee or in a formalised relationship, talk to Samantha today about career pathways, intergenerational understanding, and engaging younger workers today.
