Sisters4Success: a GWQ day engaging with Gold Coast high school girls.

Several members of the Gold Coast branch of Graduate Women Queensland joined students from three Gold Coast High Schools on March 6 to interact with students in thinking about their futures and their careers. Rosemary Power opened the day with a short history of GWQ and Marie Daix of MCCGC, facilitated the day.

Topics covered on the day included:

  • What is it like for women studying science;
  • How are you treated when you move into the workplace?
  • Career tips plus personal presentation tips.

Mood boards, selecting colours etc from colour charts and magazine, were utilised.

The students asked questions re their future. Amie Khosla suggested surrounding yourself with a good group of friends and other women suggested studying what individuals enjoy.


Graduate Women Q’ld Inc Gold Coast Branch celebrated International Women’s Day on March 8 2018 Southport Golf Club, with a breakfast and talk for forty eightpersons. Bond University and Griffith University each filled a table of six and eight persons with an enthusiastic guest table of eight persons, who won many of our raffles. Our members filled the remaining tables.

Rosemary Power initially addressed our group, followed by Carole Crowther, who relinquished the podium to our guest speaker, Susie Ting. Within the broad area of Press for Progress, Susie, from Bond University, stimulated all of us on the topic of “Where’s the Remote?”

Southport Golf Club looked after us all with efficiency and courtesy and all were entranced by the information and advice offered by Susie, a great guest speaker.
