Significance of Public Service Medals

The Public Service Medal (PSM) acknowledges public servants who have gone above and beyond to deliver. It pays homage to outstanding service, including service excellence to the public, innovation and leadership. In this episode we’re joined by Paul Way PSM, Director General, Defence Community Organisation at the Department of Defence, Dr Ros Baxter PSM, Deputy Secretary at the Department of Education, Skills and Employment and Caroline Edwards PSM, former Associate Secretary at the Department of Health and IPAA ACT Councillor. Hosted by journalist and Adjunct Professor at the University of Canberra, Virginia Haussegger AM, the conversation explores the meaning behind and significance of Public Service Medals.
