Transport Women Australia Limited (TWAL) is excited to announce the signing of a silver partnership with long term sponsor Viva Energy Australia.
The agreement was signed recently and is an ongoing commitment by both organisations to the advancement of women within the transport and logistics industry.
The partnership will strengthen the bond between the two groups and enable TWAL to continue to provide programmes and initiatives to its members.
This partnership with Viva continues the exciting year for TWAL and we are looking forward to collaborating more closely with the Viva team.
Viva Energy Australia has been a sponsor and corporate member of TWAL for many years and this partnership underpins their commitment to the organisation.
We have always collaborated closely with Viva, their support for our events and conferences and other projects has meant their contribution going well beyond sponsorship. This new partnership is just further cementing of that relationship.
This is the third partnership TWAL has signed in recent months with both Linfox and Prime Creative Media becoming Gold Partners of the association.
TWAL had a hugely successful day at CeMAT recently with our private event being well attended and the audience and speakers enjoying a very interactive and productive discussion.
Our panel provided great insight and information and we are incredibly grateful for their contribution, thank you to Courtenay Skinner (Ross Transport), Emma Andrew (Amazon Australia) and Lauren Bourke (TalentWeb) and to True Ross-Sawrey, TWAL Company Secretary for being such a wonderful MC and Facilitator on the day.
We had a marvellous speaker at our event, Joana Feiteira (Transdev) speaking about her career, her achievements and her challenges working in a predominantly male industry, moving across the globe without a job and how wonderfully well it had all turned out in the end. Joana was a Driving the Difference scholarship winner in 2022 and recently won the TWAL 2023 photo competition.
We had Kat Attana (Tasman Logistics Services) represent us on a panel – Recruitment and Career Building amidst a Labour Shortage, on the Main Stage and I was honoured to speak about Creating A Truly Diverse Work Force, also on the Main Stage in the Knowledge Theatre. The expo was a wonderful experience, and we certainly hope to be back next year.
Next week we will be off to St Francis Catholic College Edmondson Park for their VET Experience Day and then we are all off to Alice Springs for the Festival of Transport, our Annual TWAL Breakfast, the inaugural Transport Women Unite Red Ball and the very first Dream Maker Awards. We all have our red dresses ready to rock the night away.
Other exciting news involves our “Living the Dream” song which is available on Spotify and often heard on Australian Truck Radio, it has made it to the final thirty in two categories in the Australian Song Writing Awards, both Australia and Country. We are so stoked and hoping to get to the next level of Finalist when they are announced in late September, getting there one level at a time!
