SheSays Melbourne has announced that three new directors will take the reins of the company, with their first official event already under their belts.
SheSays is a global organisation that runs events and mentoring programs for women in the creative industry to encourage more women to step into leadership positions, no matter where they work.
After years of attending SheSays events and each having spent at least 12 months on the committee, Taboo’s Kate Prowse (pictured above, centre), Alt/Shift’s Molly Hyndman (pictured above, left) and Leo Burnett’s Ella Yarnton (pictured above, right) will take the lead on managing the SheSays community.
All three of the new directors got involved with SheSays after recognising the importance of women supporting other women, particularly in the creative industry, across advertising, digital, marketing, media and public relations.
Melbourne founders Steph Webster, Kara Jenkins and Jane Crowe will all stay on as directors of SheSays for the immediate future.
Prowse said SheSays is an opportunity for women (and men) to come together and learn from one another, whether that’s in the same field as themselves or a different one.
“The power in this group is the chance to learn from a range of backgrounds, particularly people you might never come across in another context,” she said.
Hydman added: “We’re better as individuals and professionals when we support one another and help each other grow. By learning from the achievements and challenges others have gone through, we’ll all benefit and get ahead both in our careers and our personal lives.”
Yarnton said the SheSays community can expect a range of intimate and larger events covering topics that she believes will be useful in everyday life, not just for careers.
“We can’t wait to bring the community great events built on purpose and giving back to those around us,” she said.
The most recent SheSays Melbourne event was held at Leo Burnett last Thursday, and focused on the topic of ‘Managing Up’. Planning for the next event is already underway, and will involve guest speakers from some of Australia’s leading agencies and brands.
