The Library, 53 Courtenay Place, Wellington, Wellington 6011

The future of work is rapidly changing alongside the climate, technology & society; connections are important now and for the future.
This is the first Alumni event for The MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology. It is for those who have been part of the MacDiarmid Whānau (past and present), it is about making connections (re-connecting and connecting for the future).
