Three selected for Women in Leadership scholarships
Friday 18 Mar 2022
Helping eliminate the barriers women face when applying for jobs in the forestry industry and improving job retention is the goal for Coaster Amanda Sharman.
Ms Sharman has received a scholarship from the Tasmanian Forests and Forest Products Network to further establish her leadership skills in her role as finance manager at CLTP Tasmania. "I think it is a good opportunity to connect with other women in the industry," she said.
After it was inundated with high-quality applications for its two Women in Leadership Scholarships recently, the Tasmanian Forests and Forest Products Network extended its offering, awarding scholarships to THREE women working in the Tasmanian forest industry, to further establish their leadership skills.
Scholarship recipients, Bonnie Galbraith (Timberlands Pacific), Amanda Sharman (CLTP Tasmania) and Carmen Windsor (Sustainable Timber Tasmania) will complete the AICD Foundations of Directorship Online Course this year; a structured 11-week program that combines virtual classroom sessions, online learning activities and individual study with support from a team of experienced faculty members. Topics covered by the program include Governance for Directors, Finance for Directors and Strategy and Risk for Directors.
Network Convenor Therese Taylor said they were actively working to increase the number of women working in forestry. "I am passionate about advocating careers for women in industries that have traditionally been male dominated," she said.
