BUILDING confidence was the key message to come from the Kwinana Industries Council (KIC) Women’s Networking Forum last week.

Playing host to a diverse range of professionals, the forum, held in association with National Association of Women in Operations (NAWO), was a success.

The forum welcomed two guest speakers in Megan McCracken and NAWO chairwoman Anna Dartnell. She built her career in a range of industries.

She said confidence was a key attribute in surviving in a traditionally male-dominated field.

“If you don’t have the skill of confidence, your personal abilities won’t be able to shine through,” she said.

“The best thing about confidence is it’s a skill, so you can always work on building that with a positive attitude.”

The next Women’s Networking Forum will take place early next year.
