📢📢📢 Calling all ANU international students,
Woroni is investigating instances where students have faced unfair working conditions. 😤😤😤 Unfair working conditions could be anything from wages not being paid by your employer, a business asking for you to do multiple trial shifts before starting to pay you, or your employer paying you a rate below the minimum wage. If there has been any abuse or conflict at work related to these issues, it would be great to hear 👂👂👂from you too.
If anything of this sort has happened to you, Woroni would love to hear from you, so that this investigation can be as strong as possible. ✍️✍️✍️ Email the news editor, Max Koslowski, at email@example.com to get in touch.
SGM is tomorrow!
Please ask any questions you would like answered by Vice-President or Secretary nominees by MIDDAY TOMORROW via this link: https://goo.gl/forms/t82Iw4AWHGQHZzqe2
Nominees will be notified of the questions at midday tomorrow, and will be able to prepare one minute answer to each question....
Please note that there will be time allocated also for questions from the floor.

Hey everyone, our friends from Unveiled Institute is offering internship and volunteer opportunities that might apply to some of you. This is a good chance if you are looking to get more involved in the ACT community. Details are as follows:
Unveiled Institute is a non-for profit think tank that aims to fill the gap when it comes to social cohesion, social inclusion and the coexistence of diverse identities in times of social unrest. We are committed to providing stakeholders... with high-quality, evidence-based policy development and analysis. It is through evidence-based policy that we will contribute to the development of mutual respect and greater understanding of cultures and beliefs in Australia and, indeed, the world.
We are looking to recruit passionate volunteers/interns for our upcoming project that aims to assess the cultural competency of service delivery providers in the domestic violence sector in the ACT. Our assessment will focus on young Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) women and their experiences or lack thereof with the DV sector in the ACT.
This project aims to give voice to young CALD women who are looking to generate meaningful policy change in this space. We hope that the project will inspire some of the most vulnerable people in our university community as well as throughout the broader ACT to speak out, change the narrative and generate change for themselves and future generations of young CALD women.
We want your help in spreading the message!
Attached below is the link to the application portal that will explain, in detail, the types of volunteers we are looking for. For your reference, we are looking for people to fill all types of positions from policy, legal to media.
Applications have already opened and will close on Friday 6th April 2018
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to get in contact with us! You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at email@example.com
