AMBC Queensland – Open, Inclusive and Dynamic

The diversity, gender balance and cultural make-up, and range of activities of successive AMBCQ executive committees are testament to openness, inclusivity and dynamism of our Chapter. AMBC Queensland is the newest chapter, but also the largest and most active. We believe in merit. An unprecedented 60% of AMBC Queensland’s executive committee members are female.
