Members of BPW WA recently attended the launch of 'Difference Makers' an inspiring book that reframes the debate about who can participate in a board directorship so that differences are not seen as negatives but as positives.
Co-Authors, Dr Nicky Howe and Alicia Curtis share their experience and research on how different points of view and different experiences can enhance problem-solving and spark innovation; it can build better boards and ultimately better organisations.
Alicia Curtis, BPW member since 2004, is one of Western Australia’s most inspiring young social and business entrepreneurs, as an award-winning speaker and leadership facilitator. Alicia established Alyceum in 2002 developing innovative transformational leadership programs.
Alicia has a Master’s degree in Business Leadership and was named one of the Australian Financial Review’s 100 Women of Influence in 2014.
Alicia is the co-founder and chair of the collective giving circle called 100 Women which combines donations into a funding pool to grant to causes that empower women.
'Difference Makers' is a resource for BPW leaders with strategies to develop your own personal commitment to diversity, guidance for Board policy and is interactive with quizzes, tools and templates.
