18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Philip Brown Public Lecture: Shareholder votes and the Boardroom : Public Lecture More Information
CPA Australia, together with the UWA Business School and Curtin Business School, proudly presents the inaugural Philip Brown Public Lecture in Accounting with Professor Ralph Walkling.

Corporate directors are the direct representatives of shareholders in the boardroom, yet little is known about the process of electing directors and in particular, the impact of shareholder votes. In a sample of over 2500 director elections Professor Walkling explores several questions. The results are at the same time reassuring, troubling, and surprising. This presentation will be relevant to both academic and practicing accountants and company directors. Professor Ralph Walkling is Visiting Professor at the UWA Business School, Founder and Director of the Centre for Corporate Governance and Stratakis Chair in Corporate Governance and Professor of Finance at Drexel University in Philadelphia.

14:00 - EVENT - Art After Death Symposium : A half day symposium exploring legal, financial and other issues affecting artists after death Website | More Information
Art After Death

A half day symposium exploring legal, financial and other issues affecting artists after death.

Arranged and supported by The University of Western Australia Law School, The University of Western Australia Cultural Precinct, and Artsource.

An artist’s primary concern is developing their professional practise, in whatever guise that might take. But do artists ever ponder what will happen to their work when they are no longer here? Who will decide where their work can be shown, who can reproduce it and for what purposes can it be copied or used?

Like any other personal property, planning for an artist’s artwork, including who will own the work, administer the artist’s copyright and moral rights, and protect their reputation after death is an important but rarely discussed consideration.

Art After Death provides a unique opportunity to hear from prominent legal, accounting and arts professionals about the issues artists and their professional advisors may need to consider when planning for an artist’s will and estate. Participants will also have the rare opportunity to ask questions and raise issues with the panel during the session.

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Global Diversity Challenges in the 21st Century Website | More Information
Effective management of diversity in society and workplaces continues to present challenges in the 21st century. Diversity management remains a fragmented research discipline and profession which suffers from crises of legitimacy and trust. Despite an ‘it’s good for us: it’s good for business’ mantra, diversity management still attracts resistance ranging from active backlash to passive indifference.

The lively interactive lecture will explore reasons for this resistance and highlight understandings of how diversity management contributes to an organisation’s triple bottom line (people, profit and planet related performance outcomes). Drawing on his extensive research collaboration with a wide range of industries and organisations, Professor Özbilgin will outline how to develop evidence based arguments to achieve support from leadership and line management for diversity management initiatives; as well as provide models which can aid assessment of diversity management activities from multiple perspectives and interests including strategy, employee well-being and productivity, reputation, profit and competitiveness. The lecture will be interactive and audience members will be able to contribute to the discussion.

Cost: free, RSVP required vis https://www.ias.uwa.edu.au/lectures/ozbilgin
