I think if the organisation was pro-active in providing anti-discriminatory education they could make a good case of having gone above and beyond in their responsibilities.
There are obviously some instances and certain people who simply deserve to be "punished" for acts of discrimination. However it would certainly be a more ideal initial step when appropriate to address the issue with education and conciliation. That way you seek to address the cause of the problem rather than simply moving it on elsewhere.

Well to follow the tangent you just went on regarding "I think the industry needs to change" (which is a very different topic than this thread is about, which is about an a-hole individual...), the big issue is the mix of students in the IT sector, which is hugely dominated by males.
I was lucky enough to work in a couple of Sydney studios with quite diverse cross-section of people, but that varies considerably across the industry, with an especially male dominated programming sector. Though I've not come across a studio quite as white-bloke dominated as the one you're currently in.

Yeah the cost thing is a diversion, on both sides. Though it would be good for any quote of the budget to clarify all that it does include, would help educate the public in that area.
The logo itself is very bland, and while it's nice to go for something "cleaner" and more modern, to not incorporate something signifying "Habour" which is probably the key thing that comes to mind about Hobart does seem like a significant omission from a communication perspective.
But of course, "design by committee", for all we know the original concepts may have included a couple of habour-flavoured ideas that were rejected with the committee wanting "no harbour flavour".

it would not get anywhere near as much media attention for that though @dave which in the modern art world therefore making the pieces far less valuable...

Well from what I can tell you don't seem overly interested in design related things so I'm not sure what to say but if I was you, I'd look at all the things you are interested in and work towards something that lets you do that. I was interested and liked design before I started working in it.
You listed you like these things:
Nature, bushwalking, travel, psychology/philosophy, music (listening)
Some work opportunities I can think of that don't involve looking at a screen.
– working live music venue or bar
– working outdoors in nature – agriculture, building
– travel – why not travel for a while and work at hostels, music venues and bars etc
as @dave was saying, I don't think you have to jump into anything yet, enjoy life, don't force yourself to do anything if you don't feel it

@CAMOR The advantage is that you email receipts to a receipt bank address (of your choosing) or simply phone pic an upload for a paperless office.
@dave fair enough. Xero offers pretty standard small business and bookkeeper features so not full of stuff most won't use. For me its time spent on bookkeeping vs features i wont use. In the 20 years of running my business its the first that i know whats happening at every level in my bookkeeping. Worth the $50 / month.
