A new future with the help of UniSQ.

After a decade serving in the Royal Australian Navy Penelope mapped a new path for her future with UniSQ by completing her Master of Project Management and Master of Business Administration (MBA) externally while working full-time.

'Without the qualifications and experience I gained from UniSQ, I would not be in the position I am today, nor hold the accolades that have been afforded to me.'

Penelope is now the Chairperson and Co-Founder of Women in Power; an organisation whose mission it is to advance the roles of women in industry.

Of her many accolades, Penelope was awarded UniSQ's 2017 Highly Commended Young Alumnus . She was also the recipient of the 2016 Queensland Telstra Business Women’s Award for Social Enterprise and Not-For-Profit, as well as three awards at the 2017 Women in Industry Awards and the 2016 APAC CEO of the Year.
