Description

“One must always be careful of books and what’s inside them, for words have the power to change us” – Cassandra Clare




It’s true and that’s why we’ve created this very special Book Club for the amazing women in Australia’s sci-tech innovation community.


Every day we work with some of Australia’s most intelligent and inspiring women through ON to help them connect their science and research with the people who can adopt and apply it to tackle some of the biggest challenges of our time!


We know that when women help other women, great things can happen. A unique community where we can connect and support each other – develop our leadership and innovation skills – share stories, research, debates and conversation.


More than just a discussion group (although do come prepared to discuss!), WiN is about focusing our efforts on practical action that can inspire, challenge and sometimes change us!


Join us to discuss our current book ‘Nice girls don’t get the corner office.’ You don't need to have read the book to join in.



When: Tuesday, 1 May2018

Where: TBC

Time: 7:30-9:30 AM

RSVP: Places are limited so please RSVP to secure your spot



What’s the book?‘Nice girls don’t get the corner office’

Hailed as a must-read for women in business. Dr Lois Frankel reveals how women make unconscious mistakes that hold them back, and gives valuable coaching tips which can be easily brought into everyday life to address and overcome these challenges.




How will the WiN Book Club Work?

Our Q2 meet-up will take place in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane - all on 1 May! We had such a great response following the launch that we're aiming to deliver in multiple locations - with more planned for the future.


Because we’re all about positive action that creates change, we’ve engaged the expertise of Dr Zivit Inbar, ON Mentor and CEO of DifferenThinking to create an activity to follow the discussion. Zivit will apply her more than 15 years’ expertise as a people and performance coach to (gently) encourage us to identify and implement the tools, tips and advice that resonate from our WiN Book Club ‘reads’ and (bit by bit) affect positive change in Australia’s innovation community.


Zivit will be on location in Melbourne, and we'll have local members of our community facilitating in Sydney and Brisbane. If you arent close enough to get to a location in person we will be hosting a special chat on the WiN SLACK where we'll have a special 'ask the expert' session with Zivit followed by some discussion about the book.


We can’t wait to see the great things this community can make happen!

Hope to see you there!
