Our membership base saw record growth over the course of 2018, demonstrating increased engagement and anchoring NOW’s important role within the university community. To better cater towards the needs of our members, we have launched a regular newsletter communicating details of upcoming events and sponsor opportunities.
We are dedicated to facilitating opportunities for our students to pursue their goals, make invaluable industry connections and develop crucial interpersonal skills that will serve them well in the workplace. This year, we have already held a number of successful events, including our inaugural J.P. Morgan Case Competition and have a number of exclusive opportunities in partnership with our sponsors coming up. Make sure you check out the events page to stay up to date!
As Co-Presidents for 2019, we are determined to see NOW reach new heights. We are firmly committed to designing events of broad appeal to a wide range of students and improving the society’s infrastructure to make this possible. In 2019, expanding sponsor relationships has been a key priority. This year, we have added the following as sponsors: Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand, Deutsche Bank, Investec, L.E.K. Consulting, Oliver Wyman, PWC and Westpac. We are passionate about developing rewarding relationships with our sponsors in order to promote their opportunities and assist them in accessing our pool of talented women. We greatly appreciate their vital contribution to the ongoing success of NOW.
In 2018, Australian women were ranked 1st in the world for educational attainment by the World Economic Forum but only 42nd for economic participation and opportunity. As the largest on campus female-oriented society at the University of Sydney, we are committed to helping young women change this disparity and write a new chapter.
