Cheers to our new Fearless partnership

Flinders University has teamed with family-owned McLaren Vale winery Hither & Yon to launch a special Fearless partnership which will explore options for Flinders’ students to undertake work experience or internships with the winery.

Sarah Walsh, Interim Executive Director, Office of Communication, Marketing and Engagement says Flinders University is proud to be partnering with a leading local South Australian business.

“Flinders University is home to thought leaders and change makers, and we are thrilled to be able to partner with Hither & Yon, which has a vision for the future and commitment to sustainability that closely aligns with ours,” says Ms Walsh.

Innovation and growth are instrumental values held by both Hither & Yon and Flinders University – having enabled the wine brand to become the state’s first carbon neutral winery and a leader in regenerative agriculture, and for Flinders to progress towards achieving climate positive status through solar generation and a raft of sustainability initiatives.

“By partnering with such a progressive and sustainable brand as Hither & Yon, we are able to continue our commitment to connect and showcase how collaboration between universities and industry can lead to remarkable innovations and discoveries that change the way we operate,” says Ms Walsh.

“Food and wine is one of South Australia’s leading industry sectors and this new partnership will provide our students with unique learning opportunities to set them apart in a competitive job market.”

The new partnership will support and inspire the University’s innovative and emerging thinkers, as part of Flinders’ recently launched Fearless brand.

In addition to creating work experience opportunities with Flinders University, Hither & Yon will have its wine presented exclusively at Fearless events, including at Fearless Conversations, as an inaugural Fearless Partner, and at FUMA exhibition openings.

To celebrate this new partnership, Hither & Yon is excited to be sharing a discount code with Flinders staff for in-store and online wine purchases. Use code FEARLESS22 to get 22% off your first order.
