I am committed to working with the CEW of Australia to make its vision of “women leaders enabling women leaders” a reality. I am lucky enough to be in a position where I have the ability to influence the development of talented women and to enable their advancement. As a business leader, I will reach into the organisation and encourage female talent to step up, lean in and get involved with the business, both in practice and in leadership. I will work with my management team to ensure that the women in my firm get the encouragement and the experience they need to quality for the senior leadership roles and to make their success visible to all others.
