July

Backpack to Briefcase: Sydney - Tuesday 2 July

The key to Financial Literacy is knowledge 

Modern living is complicated, and nothing is so complicated as your own finances. From super to savings, and investments to interest rates it’s easy to lose track of our own financial health.

Studies have consistently shown that Australians’ financial literacy is poor. The 2017 Financial Capability Survey reveals that only 35% of all Australians know the exact value of their superannuation.

Being financially literate is simply understanding and managing your money. Knowing about your finances alone isn't enough to improve your financial health; it's about how you use that knowledge.

Together with expert advisers we will dive into real-world financial scenarios and explore fundamental ideas that we can use in our everyday lives.

In teams, you will come up with a solution to the scenario and give a short 3-minute pitch in front of a panel of accomplished (but friendly) experts.

When: Tuesday 2 July 2019, 6pm - 9pm
Where: Macquarie University City Campus, Level 24, Angel Place, 123 Pitt Street, Sydney
Price: Free. This event is proudly supported by Macquarie University. Canapés and light dinner provided
RSVP: Please register by Tuesday 25 June (unless booked out prior)

Global Alumni Impact Series: Sydney - Thursday 18 July

Exercising the body and mind as we age

We all want to keep our bodies and minds healthy as we get older. Many of us experience bone and joint problems as we age which require surgery; and struggle with issues like back pain and how to exercise correctly to maintain our flexibility and posture. We all know that exercise is key to improved mental clarity, boosting energy and building strength to meet the physical demands of daily living.

This event will focus how to keep our bodies healthy and well-exercised with minimum impact on bones and joints both pre- and post-surgery. It will focus on the benefits of keeping the mind healthy and active through activities like volunteering and staying informed on the latest learnings and research at Macquarie University’s MQHealth.

Our keynote speaker is health and wellbeing expert Anna-Louise Bouvier, the founder of the exercise physiotherapy program Physiocise and Adjunct Fellow, Department of Health Professionals at Macquarie. You will also hear research updates from Macquarie University experts.

Do you have particular questions you’d like our keynote speaker or experts to cover? We encourage you to submit any questions you may have when you register. After the panel, you will have the chance to enjoy a delightful afternoon tea with our guest speakers and your fellow Macquarie University alumni.

When: Thursday 18 July 2019, 2pm - 4pm
Where: Domain Theatre, Art Gallery of NSW, Art Gallery Road Sydney
Price: Free. This event is proudly supported by Macquarie University. Canapés and light dinner provided
RSVP: Please register by Wednesday 10 July (unless booked out prior)

3rd Infants and Toddlers Conference: Sydney - 19-20 July

A right to live - a right to thrive

How can infant-toddler educators uphold the human rights of our youngest children? What about the rights of educators and how do these impact on those of the child? How might ideas about human rights vary across communities and cultures?

In this conference, we bring together practitioners, researchers, and advocates to discuss and debate these questions and more. A packed program, including keynote addresses, presentations by educators and researchers, and discussion panels will ensure that there will be lively conversations and debate.
