The College looks forward to welcoming Australian of the Year Lieutenant General David Morrison AO as the guest of honour at our forthcoming Leadership Dinner.

"Few would expect a tough-as-nails Chief of Army to be recognised internationally for his commitment to gender equality, diversity and inclusion. But when former Lieutenant-General David Morrison ordered misbehaving troops to ‘get out’ if they couldn’t accept women as equals, his video went viral and he started a cultural shift that has changed Australia’s armed forces forever." - www.australianoftheyear.org.au
