    Dear DEI members,

    Have you been thinking about your commitment to DEI? Are you interested in getting involved in the DEI Division in a low-key, but valuable way? Our incredible, dedicated AOM Connect Manager, Sanjeewa Perera from the University of South Australia, is stepping down, and we are looking for a new Manager for our AOM Connect community.

    AOM Connect, as you probably know, is how information on events and resources are shared amongst our membership, and it takes a bit of time and tending to ensure we communicate effectively with our members across the globe.  The full position description is available by clicking here. This is a non-elected position and selection is based on interest, by the DEI Executive team.

    Please read the attached description, and if you have interest, please apply by June 10, 2024, by simply uploading a CV and telling us briefly why you are interested and why you might be a good fit for the role.  You need not be a tech-y! forms.gle/23LSwdmqexoxEo7t9
