I had so much fun with the kids at ArtVo today. Get down there and experience it for yourself. And do a little bit of shopping too and support the local small businesses 👍

I was delighted to launch #SlideTheSquare at @FederationSquare yesterday. From 4-15 Jan, #tourists and #locals alike can beat the heat of #summer by enjoying a giant inflatable water slide in the city. Fed Square is running a fantastic series of summer #events this year that provide tourists with more #activities to enjoy in the heart of the city and keep our local #businesses busy during summer. #SpringSt #Tourism #Melbourne

#Startup entrepreneurs, #scientists and #engineers took part in a consultation yesterday to help set #SpringSt’s blueprint for #GenderEquality in Victoria. While women make up 46% of our workforce, they represent just 20% of the #digital #tech workers. The #GenderEqualityStrategy hopes to redress this by involving some of Victoria’s brightest minds in its creation. #STEM #Diversity #EducationState #vicforwomen
“Our future #economy will be based on ideas – and there is no better #business plan than allowing every #Victorian to reach their #potential.” - Minister for #SmallBusiness, #Innovation and #Trade Philip Dalidakis MP. More info: http://goo.gl/EEfKWL

#HelpSaveSandyBeach‬: Have your say on $1m in improvements to Sandringham Beach. ‪#SpringSt‬#SouthernMetro‬#Environment‬#‎PortPhillipBay‬#Beaches‬
"Coastline and beaches are dynamic ‪#‎environments‬ with specific challenges. At ‪#‎Sandringham‬, we’ve seen ‪#‎erosion‬ resulting in a narrower beach, affecting both cliff ‪#‎stability‬ and ‪#‎access‬ along the beach. These sessions are about presenting options for future ‪#‎management‬ of the beach and to discuss with locals how we best spend the $1 million allocated to this project." - Member for Southern Metropolitan Region, Philip Dalidakis MP.
A ‪#‎communityinfo‬ session will be on tomorrow (Thursday 18 August) from 4pm to 7pm at the Sandringham Football Club, Beach Road #Sandringham.

Today I met with His Excellency Bambung Brodjonegoro, Indonesian Minister for National Planning and Development. Our relationship with this important neighbour and trading partner continues to strengthen. #SpringSt #Trade #Indonesia #Bappenas

Today I visited the #Australian #Synchrotron in #Clayton to kickoff #NationalScienceWeek with @discoveransto, #auspol Fed Minister for Industry, Innovation & Science @greghuntmp and local #Victorian #School students.

Last week at #Australia's second annual #TechDiversityAwards Gala Dinner at Melbourne Town Hall, I presented a new series of awards for excellence in ‪#‎gender‬ and ‪#‎cultural‬#‎diversity‬ to leaders in Victoria’s ‪#‎tech‬ sector. The quality of the shortlists, let alone the winners, prove that gender and culturally diverse teams really do give you the best chance of being great. Here with winners Marcellina and Ally from @codelikeagirlau. #SpringSt #Innovation For more info visit: http://goo.gl/a2oy3u
