The Australian Centre for Leadership for Women hosted its inaugural Diversity Awards at Parliament House, Sydney, on 14 September 2016.
Written Communications founder, Natalie Scanlon, was nominated for her encouraging volunteer work that enables individuals within the City of Casey to apply for various employment opportunities.
Natalie began volunteering at local community centres with intentions of helping individuals break down communication barriers when they applied for employment opportunities.
With only one job advertised per three people within the City of Casey, Natalie realised that she had to help those who were actively applying for jobs but, had been unsuccessful because they could not put their thoughts into words.
Thriving on the idea that she didn't want the inability to communicate effectively through words to limit an individual's opportunity for future employment, Natalie was nominated for the category of ' Helping a woman experiencing disadvantage within the community' and is very proud to have come third nationally.
It was a night that celebrated some of the most dedicated, impressive and self-less women, while basking in the perfect interior that is the Sydney Parliament house.
The event recognised the highest calibre of female leaders in the country, with change being the dominant theme for the evening.
It has further ignited our passion for change, and we are excited to be able to start putting our ideas into actions.
