Ms O’Dwyer spoke to the gathering about some of the new policies and programs being put in place to support women returning to work.
“It was a great opportunity to hear first hand from the Minister about some of the initiatives they’re planning to put in place,” Joanne said.
“One of the main focuses of the government is for women to achieve financial security. They’re making a program called Career Revive to support future female entrepreneurs. They also mentioned the opportunities available for women in the STEM field.”

Research Manager Dr Katie engaged two subcontractors to conduct an online and phone interview survey, which received more than 2,500 responses. The research was purely statistics based - while Dr Katie is a mixed methods specialist, this project dealt with extensive statistical analysis.
The survey showed the number of Australians consuming online content has increased since 2015 – and that people are streaming more, downloading less, and increasing their consumption of lawful content. Trends suggest this is due to legal streaming services becoming more available and affordable in Australia.
Digital Designer Aimal Khan generated an infographic that provided a summary of the key survey results.
The report was used to inform government policy. It was presented to the Minister and is available online here.

IPS Research Manager Dr Katie is currently reviewing and updating WA land information authority Landgate’s Intellectual Property Framework, Strategy and Policy.
“Landgate have an incredible collection of satellite imagery, topography and geology, and innovative staff who are always creating new things that need to be protected,” Dr Katie said.
“Landgate are innovative and progressive in the management of their world class innovations – and part of what makes them so innovative is their proactive approach to managing their Intellectual Property.”
Dr Katie’s role is to assess the current level of awareness of Intellectual Property, and what policies are in place. She is researching government requirements and best practises in the field to determine an Intellectual Property framework for Landgate that will put them at the forefront of their field in protecting their innovations.
“People create new things all the time, but don’t always know how to protect them,” she said.
“At IPS we work closely with government departments and companies to support the protection of Intellectual Property around the valuable products and ideas that foster innovation in business.”
