ACADEMIC JOURNALS Journal of Business & Retail Management Research (JBRMR) JBRMR is a scholar and referred journal that provides as authoritative source of information for scholars, academics and professionals in the fields of business and retail management. For further information please visit at www.jbrmr.com

The International Journal of Business and Economic Development (IJBED) IJBED`s mission is to promote and publish research inquiring into the behaviour of business , their ways of upgrading themselves in response to changes in the environment and the way the policy framework is being developed to encourage them to expand in a rational manner.

BOOK PUBLICATION Globalisation Revisited: A Global Phenomenon under the Microscope Globalisation has become one of the watchwords of the latter Twentieth and early Twentieth First century. Whilst globalisation is written and talked about in a general sense this book seeks to take stock and reflect on the `era of globalisation’ through a series of regional case studies aimed at elucidating examples of globalisation in action. The book will begin with an attempt to define ‘globalisation’ as well as to give a brief history of the theoretical nature of globalisation along with schools of thought about the nature and purpose of the topic. It will also present a brief explanation of how globalisation itself has inadvertently assisted those individuals and organisations who are committed to containing or curtailing that which they refer to as globalisation.

ABRM announces a Call for Papers for the publication of a book entitled Globalisation Revisited: A global phenomenon under the microscope to be edited by Professor P.R.Banerjee and Dr P.R.Datta. Interested authors are invited to contribute chapter(s) in the book. For further details please click here

7:00 - Networking Breakfast - "Walk the Talk" Networking Breakfast : Join our breakfast speakers to learn about why and how companies are tackling the gender pay equity issue. Website | More Information
Pay equity is now firmly on the agenda of government, business and unions. In addition to meeting the National Standard in the Fair Work Act, pay equity is increasingly being considered a business driver.

Yet despite this broad recognition, many companies, practitioners and managers are unclear about what to do about the problem. How do we explain pay equity and the gender pay gap? How do we get our organisations to take notice? Where do we start?

Join Helen Conway, Director Commonwealth Workplace Gender Equality Agency, and Katie-Jeyn Romeyn, Executive General Manager Human Resources St Barbara Limited, as they talk about how companies are tackling the gender pay equity issue.

9:30 - WORKSHOP - ‘Making the Change’ Workshop : This action - oriented workshop is focused on making change in workplace pay equity and gender diversity. Website | More Information
This action-oriented workshop is focused on making change in workplace pay equity and gender diversity. This cross-industry workshop is designed for those who are interested in championing change within their organisation and looking for practical suggestions on how to address this complex and often contentious area.

Facilitated by the Pay Equity Unit at the WA Department of Commerce, this half day interactive workshop will guide practitioners through the change process from obtaining high level organisational support and undertaking data analysis to implementing evidence-based strategies to increase gender diversity and modify workplace culture. Participants will be provided with practical examples and case studies to support the implementation of pay equity strategies in their organisation.

A series of voluntary follow up sessions will be conducted in the months after the workshops to provide ongoing support and allow participants to share their experiences and ideas with others undertaking the pay equity journey.

12:00 - SEMINAR - Accomplished Education Researcher Seminar Series : Considering agency alongside structure in current considerations on child abuse in Catholic educational institutions: historical perspectives Website | More Information
In 2013 a six-member Royal Commission was established in Australia to investigate Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. This is the latest in a large number of such commissions that have been established around the world in recent years. It is clear that it will report many cases of abuse in various educational institutions, many run by the Catholic Church. And yet, like all such reports, I suspect it will – quite understandably – concentrate on agency rather than structure. In other words, while it will seek to document the situation and, quite correctly, lay blame where it needs to be laid, it may not make us any wiser in terms of trying to understand how the abuse could have taken place. Adopting the perspective of the educational historian, I wish to suggest one of many avenues that could be taken in investigations aimed at trying to generate such understanding, specifically in the case of institutions run by the Catholic Church, while recognising that the matter also needs to be addressed in the case of other churches, and for other non-state and state-run institutions.

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.
