Episode 1: Be Unique Be Included with Zeljka Jovanovic

May 10

Episode Description:

Be Unique Be Included podcast symbolises something exceptional, authentic, and close to my heart. The podcast was developed because of the need, and we are eager to share our unique experiences with others interested in learning more about diversity and inclusion.

Being unique gives us a sense of purpose in life. Our uniqueness can be found in our thoughts, creativity, beliefs, values, and even how we show up every day in the world. We believe that people need to embrace and recognise those attributes and talents that make them remarkable people.

Australian society is increasingly becoming diverse and learning how to adapt toward inclusion is becoming a vital topic. Inclusion occurs when people are valued and respected for who they are, for their uniqueness. All of us can support creating an environment where individuals can contribute their personal best in every encounter, their perspectives, and talents and have a sense of belonging.

In this first episode, we will provide some background information about Apeiron Skills and its founder Zeljka Jovanovic.

In future episodes, you will hear remarkable stories from people from different walks of life. Let us take you on a journey like no other and hear from real people about their unique experiences on their path to success and inclusion.
