Celebrating International Women’s Day
To celebrate International Women’s Day, NDY hosted a staff and client breakfast event at our Sydney office with guest speakers Jen Day and Alex Harrington.
Jen Day, Director of Indigenous Women in Business and GM Customer Demand Optimisation at Telstra, shared her story as a Veterinarian and Vice-Captain of Australia’s Volleyball team – and her grandmother’s experience as a member of the stolen generation – and how these experiences led to her role with an indigenous not for profit.
Alex Harrington, COO of The Warren Centre, spoke about issues including diversity bias, pay parity, the need to encourage more females to embrace STEM subjects, and why diversity – in all forms – is fundamental to business success.
The 2017 IWD theme was #BeBoldForChange and proceedings were hosted by Tim Spies and Benita Husband. All those who attended were encouraged to write their pledge on our pledge wall which was a tangible display of individual action.
