This month we welcome Brigid Emmett, who will lead the brand new Thrive program, Diversity Inclusion’s latest exciting initiative for working parents.
Thrive is aimed at supporting organisations to retain their female talent, and support employees, their managers and the organisation to balance career and caring responsibilities.
Brigid comes to the team with over 12 years of experience providing legal and business advice to a broad range of small and large business as well as individuals. A significant aspect of her career has involved resolving commercial disputes and she intimately understands the corporate landscape.
Brigid has also spent considerable time acting for both employers and employees on a range of employment law matters including workplace agreements, termination of employment procedures, unfair dismissal, under-payment of wages, redundancy, employment entitlements and sexual harassment and discrimination claims.
As the mother of 2 young boys, Brigid has experienced firsthand the juggle of career and parenthood and is excited by the opportunities that Thrive will create. A passionate advocate for fairer working arrangements and more win-win outcomes for organisations, managers and employees, Brigid is exciting to help lead the program in 2018.
