2019 WILD Women

The 2019 inaugural WILD Program received an overwhelming response from the STEM sector, validating the need for such a program. Twenty high-calibre women from across a range of industries completed the program.

Since the start of the program:

  • 40% of our 2019 cohort have attained a new role or position
  • 25% of our 2019 cohort are serving on boards

The 2019 WILD women were selected from STEM areas including biotechnology, medical devices, manufacturing, digital health, intellectual property, computer and data science, environmental science and engineering.

While a large proportion of our cohort have already experienced career progression, the real impact has been in the powerful relationships and camaraderie formed amongst the cohort, which is immeasurable.
