Going WILD in 2019
Thrilled to share some exciting news! Jane has been selected to join 20 women in the inaugural cohort of the WILD program. What's that you ask? Read more to find out, but what we can say is that sometimes things happen at a perfect time in your life!
We know that there can be barriers to women gaining senior leadership positions and company directorships. The WILD (Women in Leadership Development) program is aimed at early to mid-career women in the Victorian STEM sector and aims to build qualifications, skills and confidence. This will better position women like Jane to obtain competitive senior STEM positions, pursue successful careers and to help get more women on STEM boards.
The program includes the highly sought after Australian Institute of Company Directors course, a two-day leadership skills course and then a third component of mentoring along with real world experience.
CERA - Centre for Eye Research Australia are leading the program under the guidance of the talented project team of Lauren Giorgio, Nadine Brew and Udani Reets who saw an opportunity to help advance women in STEM. The program is generously supported by Brandon Capital Partners and the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.
