At AHEIA, our networks unite the brightest minds from across the higher education sector, creating a dynamic space for connection, collaboration, and growth. Through these networks, we ensure an unimpeded flow of resources and expertise, fostering a vibrant exchange of ideas and innovations. This rich environment keeps you at the cutting edge of your academic and professional pursuits within higher education.

In today's world, where collaborative endeavors often pave the path to success, AHEIA's Networks serve as vital catalysts. They spark groundbreaking partnerships and projects, blending diverse perspectives and expertise. By interlinking universities throughout Australia, we not only bridge physical distances but also cultivate a powerful synergy.

AHEIA currently hosts higher education networks for Chief People Officers (CPO), State-based WR/IR, Organisational Development (OD), Talent Acquisition, Retention and Employee Experience (TAREE) and Strategic Workforce Planning (SWP). In 2024, the HR Business Partnering Network will launch and we welcome suggestions for ways we can facilitate connection across the sector.

The networks are open to topic / role specific staff across the higher education sector in Australia and New Zealand.
