CEO & Founder - Young Professional Women Australia | Employee Engagement & Performance Specialist - Employerbility
A gen ‘X’ er, Kate has grown up in a generation who have had permission to have it all…. successful careers (often at times the main bread winner), caring responsibilities, volunteer opportunities and don’t forget managing the household finances and keeping the body mind and soul on track with weekly yoga classes and a few laps of the local pool. Yes….the feminist movement has given us options, in fact so many that it is almost politically incorrect (at least amongst working professionals) to choose to be a stay at home mum.
No longer limited by options, opportunities and capacity now seem to be the challenge for working female and male professionals. Organisations, workplaces and the nature of the employee employer relationship have changed, the only certainty that there is more ahead. The concept of ‘employee’ and ‘tenure’ is colliding with 1 in 3 Australians already engaged in a ‘side hustle’ for financial and fulfillment purposes. Attracting and engaging talent will become increasingly hard as will creating a workplace experience that suits employees, clients and the leaders of an organisation. The Future of Work is here….
Having worked in senior finance and leadership roles, Kate understands the complexity and dynamics at play in large organizations as well as the unwavering need for commercial outcomes. As a facilitator and systemic practitioner, Kate can help you explore these dynamics within your organisation and provide insight and advice about how you can achieve cultural change that aligns with the future of work and your organisations goals and strategy.
Kate’s an active thought leader and advocate for gender equality and founder of Young Professional Women Australia – an organisation with a collective voice of more than 3,500 members committed to supporting the progression of professional women in their early-mid career. For over 5 years the organization has provided free advice, education and networking events as well as professional development programs that empower and inspire women to challenge the rules, ultimately becoming role models and change makers in their organizations.
Kate has worked with some of the Australia’s largest brands including KPMG, NSW Treasury, BDO, Family & Community Services (FACS), Intercontinental Hotels Group, Pfizer, Link Housing, Evolution Mining, Bluescope Steel, Healthshare, Veolia and Fairfax Media.
