Downer Infrastructure Services is pleased to announce the sponsorship of the 2017 National Association of Women in Construction’s (Vic Chapter) CEO Shadow Program. Focusing on diversity and inclusiveness addresses our skills shortage and taps into under-utilised sources of talent. Just as importantly, it drives innovation and financial performance through diverse perspectives and representations.
“Downer is especially pleased to grow that partnership by sponsoring the NAWIC (Vic Chapter) CEO Shadow program in 2017,” said Sergio Cinerari, CEO Downer Infrastructure Services.
“This fantastic program provides Victorian NAWIC members who have the drive and ambition with the chance to spend a day shadowing a senior industry leader.”
“This valuable empowerment and development opportunity gives participants the chance to engage, watch, learn, and more importantly, get insights and advice from senior leaders from the industry,” added Serge who also committed to participating in the CEO Shadow Program.
“We’ve extremely pleased to partner with Downer on our 2017 NAWIC (Vic Chapter) CEO Shadow Program,” said Samantha Woodward, NAWIC Victorian Chapter President. “Through Downer’s support, NAWIC is able to provide deserving members who may face limited development opportunities in their current roles, access to participate in inspirational and empowering initiatives such as the CEO Shadow Program.
“A big ‘thank you’ to Downer and we now take this opportunity to ask all our industry leaders to further demonstrate their commitment to diversity and inclusiveness by getting involved in this important program.” “This is a significant development opportunity for up and coming women leaders in the industry to engage with senior industry leaders who generously take time out of their busy schedules”.
