Last year’s mid-winter dinner was such a success we are holding the event again this year. Join us at Logan Brown Restaurant, catch-up with your PACE colleagues and enjoy a delicious dinner and drinks.

Logan Brown will be serving their Bistro Set Menu, which is normally priced at $50, however due to the prudent management of funds by the PACE management team, we are able to subside the cost and pass on a $15 saving to our members. Therefore, the dinner will only cost you $35, plus a complimentary glass of bubbles on arrival.

Unconscious Bias, Gender and the Workplace: Unconscious biases are preferences that inform our judgements, behaviors and decisions.  Unconscious bias is typically automatic, based on stereotypes, and is triggered by our brain making quick judgements about people. Biases are influenced by our cultural and personal experiences.  Unconscious bias can be particularly problematic when it conflicts with, and therefore undermines, the equity goals organizations are consciously committed to.
