Know Your Self Worth -
Irene Wakefield - Prepair NZ
Dr Ann Smith- EnviroMark
VUWWIB hosted a panel discussion with three inspirational women who had all faced challenges both professionally and personally. They spoke on how they overcame their fears to succeed in their careers. Again this event was followed by a networking event.
Over three days VUWWIB attended the various Vic campuses to photograph students for their LinkedIn profiles. This was an extremely successful event and our photographs now grace numerous student profiles. We will definitely be replicating this event in 2018!
A live interview with Chlöe Swarbrick
Held at the Hunter lounge we squeezed in a live interview during lunchtime. The delightful Merinda Jackson was able to help us out and have a chat with Chlöe. The 2017 election campaigns were in full swing and this was a fantastic opportunity for students to hear from Chlöe and also ask her questions about her political journey
