Events

Your DPMG Outreach and Professional Development Committees organise some great events and workshops throughout the year. They are a great way to get out of your office and meet other fellow DPMG members. So get involved today in developing your social and professional network and skills!

Mark your calendars!

Pink Day

Check out the different events across all campuses on Tuesday, September 25. Pink Day started after a school community chose to come together in solidarity with a male student being bullied by classmates for wearing a pink shirt to school. This event provides the opportunity to remind our University community that all forms of assault, harassment, discrimination and bullying are always unacceptable, whether they be on campus, online, or at home.
