Thirty-one female students from Rockingham, Kwinana, Baldivis and Cockburn graduated from the Kwinana Industries Council’s iWOMEN project during a special ceremony last Tuesday.

The students, from 15 high schools across the area, were selected to take part in the program which aims at providing young women with the chance to explore and understand the significance of industry in Kwinana, as well as the range of career options available to them.

KIC director Chris Oughton said the program was a great opportunity for students to receive first-hand knowledge about possible career paths.

“I am confident that the students who graduated last night, will go on to use these newly learnt skills in their final years at high school and beyond Year 12,” he said.

The students were involved in a variety of activities, which boosted their self-confidence and provided them with a wealth of knowledge about the varied roles and career pathways that are available for women in industry.
