FOCUS Program

Recently, we ran a program with the Australian Business & Community Network (ABCN) where Year 10 and 11 students nominated to participate in a series of workshops where they connected with young female executives using video conferencing. The executives, all from the company KPMG, were young women from a diverse range of backgrounds who acted as role models and mentors for our students and they discussed a range of topics including:

  • What is the meaning of leadership?
  • How do I know my strengths?
  • Who inspires me?

Our students got to see young women living out their career goals and were able to share their challenges and career journeys in order to get insight to their own future pathways and personal potential.
Our students really developed their strengths in communicating their ideas with others and gaining confidence in their leadership potential. It was a delight to work with the group and see them shine in such a positive way!
