George Weston Foods’ Sam Apps heads to INSEAD
Sydney May 17: Chief Executive Women (CEW) today announced George Weston Foods’ Samantha Apps is the winner of a scholarship to attend the prestigious Negotiation Dynamics Program at INSEAD, Singapore this week.
Announcing the winner, President of CEW, Dianne Smith-Gander, said: “Supporting women in senior roles is not only a social justice issue, it makes economic sense: companies with female leaders will outperform those with none, making about 15 per cent more profit.
“Women need to have equal opportunity to attend career-transforming programs such as this. So until equality of opportunity is a reality, CEW is proud to continue to provide scholarships enabling more women to lead.’
