On 3 August, POF hosted BioMelbourne’s ‘Women in Leadership’ lunch featuring guest speaker, Donny Walford. As the inaugural sponsor of BioMelbourne’s ‘Connecting Women’ luncheon, POF embraces diversity and proudly recognises the contributions of women in STEM. The event was held in acknowledgement of all nominees from the ‘Women in Leadership Awards’ in May, celebrating the calibre of inspiring women in the biotechnology, medical technology and health sectors.
As the founder of both DW Bottom Line Pty Ltd (Bottomline) Transition Strategists™ and DW Behind Closed Doors Pty Ltd, Donny, has a wealth of experience working with boards, executives, senior management and business owners across industry, government and the not-for-profit sector. Donny shared insights into why career planning, including for leadership and board roles, will contribute to success, as well as the challenges she faced along her career path.
The event was a great success, with guests also having the opportunity to network with industry peers. We would like to thank everyone who attended and we look forward to continuing to support these important events.
