- Mentoring young women for International Women's Day

To celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March 2019 the Commission held its third speed mentoring event.

This year the Commission shifted the venue to the Seminar Room at the Commission’s offices where eight mentors, including WA Industrial Relations Commissioner Toni Walkington, Co-editor of the Sunday Times Magazine Nicolette Casella and Senior Reporter at The West Australian Kim Macdonald, mentored ten young women from John Curtin College of the Arts, Mercedes College and Mount Lawley Senior High School.

Manager Commission Services Diana MacTiernan was mentoring for the second time and said she was impressed with the thoughtful questions many of the young women asked.

“They are all thinking seriously about the different challenges they might face going into the workforce and genuinely want the tools to address them in the best possible way, which is really admirable,” she said.
