Financial literacy workshops

Financial literacy is a complex concept as it varies for individual’s distinct financial situation, goals, knowledge, and preferences. Education, income, cultural background, and life experiences influences one’s financial literacy. Understanding personal finance requires a combination of skills such as budgeting, investing, debt management, and planning for financial security/stability for the person’s unique circumstances.

The Faculty of Business and Law’s Financial Literacy project is dedicated to promoting economic inclusion for women in remote, regional, and rural communities. This initiative addresses the unique challenges faced by women in remote areas, including limited access to financial services, employment opportunities, and educational resources.

The Sustainable Events Guide

The Faculty of Business and Law has incorporated a student’s assessment into the creation of a Sustainable Events Guide. This guide is designed to help students and staff create sustainable operational events that protect our planet by reducing our carbon footprint and energy usage.

In alignment with SDG12 and 13, this new document provides a step-by-step check list to help embed more sustainable business practices.

We would like to acknowledge that this was a Students as Partners initiative . These guidelines were inspired by a Tourism Hospitality and Events student assessment completed by Chrisina Jardim, as part of MGMT2003 Sustainable Event Development.
