Magnus Gittins, AGSM director of executive education, who was there to present the awards, said: “The superannuation industry is vital to assuring the long-term financial livelihoods of Australians in their later stages of life and yet has challenges related to equity and accessibility; issues that Women in Super has been championing for many years. We are committed to developing the leadership potential of women in the superannuation industry as advocates for change and improvement. These scholarships provide a great opportunity for talented women to pursue executive education across a range of core strategic capabilities to develop strategic leadership and management skills”.
Lata McNulty, chair of the NSW Women in Super committee added: “I would like to congratulate the winners for their successful application. The AGSM Executive Education programs offer a great opportunity to develop professional skills. The AGSM ranks among the top 100 business schools globally and the program is a wonderful example of how Women in Super is helping to support the pathway to leadership for our members. We are very grateful to the AGSM for once again partnering with us this year and look forward to encouraging more candidates to participate in the process in 2020.”
