The recently held International Women’s Day serves as a timely reminder that there are great opportunities for women to pursue in their given careers, particularly when it comes to mentoring and encouraging leadership, management and communication skills for other women in business.
Catherine Wundele plans to pursue this very opportunity as a scholarship recipient of the Executive Ready leadership program, run by Women & Leadership Australia (WLA) in partnership with Hort Innovation.
Currently the admin and HR Manager at Plant Growers Australia production nursery in Wonga Park, Victoria, Catherine will shortly begin an intensive seven-month professional development program, covering topics including team dynamics, driving performance, communication and influence and leading innovation and change.
Plant Growers Australia production nursery employs more than 80 staff, and produces more than 300 lines of native and exotic varieties that are supplied to independent and larger retail chains across Australia.
As the only woman in a senior management role in the business, Catherine sees the program as an opportunity to build essential skills to progress her own career and the career of those around her. More
