We had:

Seamus Evans, Ambassador for Tourette Syndrome Association of Australia, Inc. (TSAA), public speaker, stand-up comedian, radio personality and a content creator talking about shocking new research revealing that three quarters (76%) of Australians believe that workplaces need to be more inclusive when it comes to hiring people with a disability, yet three quarters (78%) believe that having a disability leads to discrimination in the workplace. To coincide with Tourette Syndrome Awareness Week (3rd – 9th May), the TSAA is encouraging Aussies to ‘tic’ the box on inclusion and embrace disabilities in the workplace by sharing a selfie of themselves or their colleagues with the hashtags #ticthebox and #TSAW21

Melinda Cruz, Founder and Board Director of Miracle Babies Foundation talking about an Australian-first, Miracle Babies Foundation is launching an information hub in collaboration with parents and health professionals. Nurture ‘E’ has been created to provide new and improved evidence, education and empowerment for families of premature or sick babies, as well as the children themselves as they grow and develop.
