Women on Boards is blessed with excellent staff, a great board, fine mentors, loyal partners, good friends and a network of extraordinary women. As we move into the 2019 Christmas season, we express our gratitude to all of these people and their organisations who enable our work in moving women into board and leadership roles.
This year we welcomed two new members to our team; Nicole Donegan as Chief Operations Officer, and Eva Heist, as Manager of Corporate Relationships. Thank you for joining our team, and to Victoria Featherby and Angela Bowen, for all their continued work for WOB.
A special congratulations to all those who have achieved board and committee roles or put their toe in the water and applied for the first time. Congratulations also to our WOBSX graduates and special thanks to Dan Liszka and the syndicate chairs and corporate supporters of the WOBSX program for their huge efforts in making this program such a success.
The 2019 Christmas season sees many across our nation exhausted by the dual burdens of drought and fire. This year WOB has made a contribution on behalf of the men and women who have been guest presenters at our workshops and events to the Red Cross Drought Relief and Recovery Appeal. Thank you for lending your time and knowledge to WOB. We have also made a contribution on behalf of our three main corporate partners in 2019, Clayton Utz, McGrathNicol and Grant Thornton
, who have hosted us on many occasions and provided great goodwill and service to WOB. Combined, the donations totalled $4,000, which we trust will be put to good use in alleviating difficulties for some families this Christmas.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas wherever you may be and a safe and peaceful festive season. See you in 2020.
