The Mastermind Group has launched Mastermind Smart Girls, which aims to support women taking on leadership roles within the ICT industry in Australia.
The Mastermind Smart Girls premise is that employers must be committed to cultivating the best talent and supporting flexible work arrangements to meet the needs of professional women. Mastermind Smart Girls aims to fill what The Mastermind Group has identified as a void in the ICT sector by addressing the lack of effective Project Management and Business Analysis services in the ICT industry.
“It’s already hard enough these days for women to be truly successful in business, let alone to make their mark in the ICT industry,” Mastermind Smart Girls Chairman and Founder, Fulvio Inserra, says. “I wanted to do something positive about this and in doing so, help women carve their own niche in the ICT industry.
“This isn’t a man versus women thing; it’s more about acknowledging and leveraging the value that women can bring to the ICT industry and, as a result, showing that together we can make a genuine difference in improving the strike rate for the delivery of successful project outcomes.
“Project Management and Business Analysis skills are critical for delivering successful projects and outcomes and we believe that women are the untapped pool of natural skills and talent to address this gap in a professional, flexible and methodical way.”
