Past Participant Comments

“Following my on-boarding into the DPP in February, I have experienced a profound mindset shift, resulting in me being able to more clearly set myself a board career objective.”

“The highlight for me of the DPP has been meeting like minded women from all industries. We have a strong group of women who still catch-up regularly. It has also been fantastic to meet a number of high profile mining execs and board members during the DPP events.”

“Thank you so much for this opportunity. I grabbed it with both hands, attended everything and engaged in everything. I got so much out of it.”
