Career Crossover – Mission Impossible or Field of Dreams?


Ever wanted to try something completely different but was too scared to take the plunge?

Ever thought a job ad sounded so interesting but clicked straight past because it was in a completely different field and ‘what’s the point even dreaming’?

Then do not miss this NAWO event to hear the story of the administration officer, the nurse, the crane driver and the general manager…

BlueScope is Australia’s largest Steelmaker, producing over 3.1 million tonne per annum. It is also an employer that promotes an inclusive culture and actively pursues a diverse workforce. But it is how BlueScope achieves a diverse workforce that is really interesting.

Join NAWO NSW to hear keynote speaker Peta Renkin, General Manager of BlueScope Building Components, share her career journey from HR to manufacturing and back again. Then hear from an inspiring panel of women who have pushed the restart button on their careers and made the successful crossover to non-traditional roles in manufacturing.

This event will boost your courage and confidence to take the plunge and change your career path!

Guest Speaker:
Peta Renkin – General Manager of BlueScope Building Components
