IMC'S Women in Consulting Community of Practice

The Queensland Chapter launched an informal inaugural get together of women members and non-members to gauge interest in an ongoing interest group to enable women management consultants to share experiences and network. The overwhelming decision was to support the initiative and plan further hybrid events to allow women from other Chapters and States to attend.    
 
Women are under-represented in IMC and Catherine Lee MIMC of the Queensland Chapter is planning the next event to follow on from the Women In Consulting panel discussion in June. Stay tuned!
