We could not be more excited to announce our very first Alumni Networking Event to bring together mentees and mentors from all years of our Mentoring Program for continued sharing and learning. In addition to providing an opportunity for you all to re-connect, we hope this Alumni will contribute to a community of practice around transformational and inclusive leadership.
To that end, we will be joined on the evening by special guest, Janet Menzies. Janet is a long-term advocate for gender equality and is the Board Chair of the Champions of Change Coalition, a social change movement bringing together leaders from across multiple sectors to shift the dial on gender equality. She is currently the Country Director of Amazon in Australia, and before that, was the General Manager at Cochlear, so it’s safe to say that she has quite a bit of experience in leadership positions! Janet will share her leadership insights and experiences with us during an In Conversation style interview with our Founder Dr Melina Georgousakis, with plenty of opportunities for you to ask her your questions too.
We are so looking forward to seeing you all and launching our Mentoring Program Alumni with a bang!!
