“For International Women’s Day 2024, Tanya created a bespoke and interactive workshop for our team members. From the initial consultation to the post workshop follow-up, Tanya’s expertise as a gender and communication expert shone through. She skilfully facilitated the workshop, keeping our key outcomes at the fore and there was strong engagement from the group. We will continue to work with Tanya to further develop our gender and diversity, equity and inclusion strategies and policies.” Struan Wilson, CEO Investructure - Australia

"At Urban Utilities I’ve had a number of early career women from my team complete Trellis Collective’s First Five early career program. They really enjoyed it and are still getting so much value from it. There is not much else available that is similar to this for them so it’s great to see a program dedicated to this stage of career.

Essential to support, encourage young women early on in their careers to build their confidence and continue to fan the flames!” Dr Sonja Toft, Manager Process Engineering Resource Recovery, Urban Utilities - Australia
