Qube has announced a partnership with UNIQ You to promote industry opportunities where women are under represented.
The Queensland-based not-for-profit, UNIQ You, aims to expose high school girls in years 9-12 who may be inhibited by gender stereotypes in the pursuit of careers.
According to Emily Link, Director – People, Culture & Safety, Qube is well-positioned to drive change.
“Qube is committed to creating an environment that encourages inclusion, equity and diversity. We are delighted to be partnering with UNIQ You to help encourage the next generation of women into our sector where they can experience dynamic, exciting and diverse careers,” she said.
“Our operations stretch across all regions of Australia and the opportunities for passionate women to make a difference are endless.”
UNIQ You CEO Tanya Meessmann is excited about the prospect of partnering with the Australian integrated logistics provider.
“The scope and breadth of knowledge and expertise required to manage the acquisition, storage and transport of resources is enormous,” she said.
“Our partnership with Qube allows us to expose Years 9-12 girls to opportunities across the supply chain from beginning to end and represents an important step towards closing the gender gap in one of Australia’s most sophisticated and complex sectors.”
UNIQ You aims to take a giant step towards addressing the critical pipeline issue that limits girls’ opportunities in rapidly evolving and increasingly competitive spaces by facilitating career advisory calls, and with the support of partner companies such as Qube.
