As the former information technology manager at Newcastle City Council, Claire Bath has walked the walk as a female executive in a male dominated industry sector.
With over 40 years contribution to the field, Bath has been able to serve as a leader and open up pathways for other emerging female leaders.
In 2019, she directly contributed to the development of female leaders within regional New South Wales. She helped these women to not only progress, but to truly excel.
An original to the ‘code like a girl’ movement, Claire started her career as a Computer Programmer (1980 – 1983) working on software development of engineering systems; Analyst/Programmer and IT consultant for Rio Tinto (1984 –1991).
For 11 years she ran her own consultancy business (1992 – 2003) where she concurrently delivered the Certificate IV and Diploma in Information Technology within TAFE NSW and a Business Institute to help students
enter the field.
During her 16-year stint with Newcastle City Council (now City of Newcastle) Bath has worked as a Programmer/Analyst, Senior Systems Analyst, Acting City Structures Coordinator, Asset Systems Manager, IT Project Office Coordinator, Transition Program Manager and Information Technology Manager.
Bath’s impact has helped leading technical advancements in every sector including public service and education.
In regional Australia, female tech leaders are further limited than in the
metropolitan locations – making Bath’s services all the more important.
