Director Pipeline Project
Supporting WA’s female executives
We have launched a new board diversity initiative to support 45 of the State’s female executives.
The Director Pipeline Project is a year-long pilot program of education and networking opportunities designed to help organisations recognise their highly-capable employees.
It complements our National Board Diversity initiatives.
In 2011, the project will comprise a range of professional development programs designed to develop and enhance the participant’s board skills. It will also provide profile-building opportunities and private networking lunches with leading directors.
Industry Sectors Represented
The 45 female executives invited to participate in the pilot work for organisations across a range of industry sectors, including oil and gas, mining and resources, health, banking, not-for-profit (NFP) and professional services.
Employers backing the project – all of which are long-term supporters of Company Directors’ WA Division – have demonstrated their commitment to addressing diversity through contributing to the professional development of their female executives.
The Director Pipeline Project was launched with the support of Deloitte, and the year-long program will also be supported by companies such as Lavan Legal, Freehills, KPMG, Blake Dawson and Gerard Daniels.
