In recognition of Neurodiversity Celebration Week, we published a guest blog piece written by Amber Rowe who outlines how workplaces can be more neuroinclusive.

We talk to Jo Williams of J.W. Framing & Supply in Newtown, who used a WCC Organics Diversion Fund grant to rescue eight tonnes of native timber when the Wellington Girls’ College auditorium was demolished.
WCL visited Jo to find out how and why she rescued the wood, otherwise destined for landfill, and how her framing and supply business is developing.

A peek behind the scenes: what goes on at club or society committee meetings?
Local author, and experienced director, Pierre Woolridge recently distilled his knowledge into a book aimed at volunteer officers on not-for-profit boards and committees.

If you are part of a school board, sports club committee, or any other small organisation then Pierre’s talk will be of interest to you.
All welcome
