WIL Wollongong Leadership Launch

The St George Illawarra Dragons in conjunction with the NRL were on hand to help support the inaugural Wollongong Wellbeing and Balance Workshop as part of the 2014 Women in League Round on Wednesday.

Dragons Ambassador Shaun Timmins was joined by Matt Cooper and over 30 women involved with rugby league in Wollongong for the inaugural leadership workshop launched this week by the NRL to invest in the fastest growing area of influence in the game … girls and female.

“It was humbling to see so many proud women of our game in attendance at the workshop,” said Timmins.

“Women play a very important role in rugby league and it is appropriate that we as a collective recognise them for it.

“These workshops were very inspiring and beneficial for everyone involved.”

NRL General Manager of People and Culture Vanessa Porter ran the workshops in conjunction with other expert human resources presenters.

Porter has held senior executive roles with major international companies including Staging Connections, McDonald's, Vero Insurance, Disney Stores (UK) and the Australian Retailers Association.
