8th National Women in Rail, Roads & Transport Infrastructure Leadership Summit

13th April 2024

On April 12th Chair, Jacquelene Brotherton attended the 8th National Women In Rail, Roads & Transport Infrastructure Leadership Summit in Sydney. What a packed program it was and a fantastic day with incredible speakers. The fabulous MC was Dr Leanne Elich, who is such an amazing speaker and leader.

 

She participated in a panel discussion РSustaining Momentum РAdvancing Gender Balance In Leadership with Janet Jackson, Head of Health, Safety & Environment at UGL Regional Linx, Nicole Waterman, Technical Leader at Laing O’Rourke and Macarena Martinez Medina, Senior Project Manager at ARUP, where we were able to share our experience, and hopefully inspire others to believe in themselves and speak up.

 

This was followed by her presentation – Steering Progress For The Road Less Travelled where she spoke about her 50 year career, her pathway into the industry and the varied roles along throughout the years and the zig, zags and steep climbs along the way from the beginning in outback NSW to places like Capitol Hill in Washington DC.
