It is our pleasure to let you know we have appointed four new Members to our Board.
Based in WA are Andrea Sutton, Board Member & Non-Executive Director and Matthew Brierley, Manager of Intelligent Assets & Gender Equality Matters Co-Chair at Woodside Energy. Former Queensland Committee Chair Kartini Oei, Transformation Manager, Air BP, has stepped up for Queensland and Adrian Fahey, Managing Director & CEO of SAGE Group will represent South Australia.
We are delighted to bring such a powerhouse of expertise, skills and passion for driving better gender balance in operations together, and warmly welcome Andrea, Matthew, Kartini and Adrian to the NAWO network.
With deep gratitude we bid farewell to Anna Dartnell, our WA Board Member who stepped down at our AGM last week. Anna has been part of NAWO for over 10 years – firstly as WA Committee Chair, then latterly as a Board Member for the past two years. Anna is a passionate supporter of NAWO and has also been instrumental in brokering new memberships with Bis Industries and Aurizon.
This week we also launch our 2019/2020 annual report – in a new digital format celebrating the achievements of a year of two parts, and recognising the monumental efforts of our volunteer Committees, Board and Executive team in transitioning our programs and events online. We couldn’t have delivered our program without the support of our members and the photos in the report are testament to the fabulous input and participation our members give to NAWO.
We will also take this opportunity to remind you of our NAWO Nine Levers for Gender Balance – our roadmap, or touchpoints for guiding the work we and you as members can do to support women develop their careers and create more inclusive workplaces in operations.
These Levers inform everything we deliver for our network across our content streams – events, professional development, industry solutions activity, toolkits, case studies and podcasts to name a few; and as members we encourage you to use them to determine your inclusion and diversity strategy and actions.
