WHAT DO WE ACTUALLY DO?
Acorn Network is focused on building awareness of the need to involve young professionals and supporting intergenerational connection in our workplaces.
Young people don’t see their peers achieving and leading, universities are not promoting our industry's potential,
and aged care workplaces are not targeting young people in their training or recruitment.
We believe the need to improve age diversity continues as the workforce ages. Age diversity is known to be a key to overall business growth, improved problem solving, higher earnings, and more effective team performance.
Acorn Network is a frontline provider for these services and building a collaborative network that will work with emerging professionals, students, established leaders, leading organisations and the Australian public to build initiatives that are needed, wanted, and sustainable.
Our events, programs, and presentations are a brilliant opportunity for you and your teams to meet other driven young professionals in a youthful, fun, and leadership driven environment - no matter what profession you’re in we welcome you to join us.
We want to support you to become the best leader and manager possible, it is the only way we can create supportive and innovative workplaces for the future.
