Natalie wins “Your Leadership Voice” scholarship
It’s been an exciting time for IFS Finance Manager Natalie Lister. Natalie has won the first Women in Super VIC and Monash Business School "Your Leadership Voice" scholarship valued at $10,000.
“I was absolutely thrilled, shocked and nervous at the same time.” Listening to Natalie, even days after she received the good news, you could still hear the excitement in her voice. And who wouldn’t be excited about being part of a standout program for women. The intense 5-month course is designed to help women step up as leaders with training and support to build skills in critical areas.
Natalie joined IFS after working for a large accounting firm straight from university and has been part of our team for over 15 years. She’s a busy full-time working mum and step-mum to six children. While adding value and mentoring other women in the industry were strong drivers in applying for the scholarship, Natalie was also personally motivated.
“I’m doing it for my children as well as myself. It’s important to me that my children - especially my daughters - are financially independent. It shows my children how my hard work and dedication has paid off and been recognised. Winning the scholarship makes me so proud and proves how far I have come."
