Announcement for the Directors Award in 2017

Now, more than ever creating hope and having a cause to focus on gives us inspiration for our future. My focus as I take on this new responsibility is to celebrate the diversity we have within our organisation and give all diverse groups a vehicle for the 4 C that we focus on of Celebrate, Connect, Collaborate and Create Change.

Our People

Much has already been achieved through the investment in Womenwise and we have so much more to do. We need to remain focused on the cause of inspiring women across the FCTG network and encouraging women to step out and step up into leadership. As we re emerge from our hibernation state we will be a better and stronger business if we draw on our diversity to rebuild.
