BlueScope driving a change in the game

LEARNING: Kamini Wijekulasuriya and Marianna Tolo are part of a new BlueScope initiative buddying athletes and managers. Picture: Desiree SavageWhen the Australian Institute of Sport was trying to rally up corporate sponsorship for female athletes, BlueScope Steel stepped up to the plate but in a way that’s never been done before.

The Change the Game pilot was launched in November 2015 and buddied 10 up and coming female athletes with 10 emerging leaders (male or female)from the industrial giant, both groups purposely chosen to represent diversity.

BlueScope’s general manager for people and performance Kristie Keast led the program’s development and said because sport was such an important part of Australian culture they wanted to be apart of it.

‘We were trying to find innovative ways of tapping into different experiences to grow all of our people,” she said. “It offers personal development and growth for all participants in terms of having an innovative way of sharing experiences in business and sport.”

The program runs for 12 months where each pair will learn about each other’s world and what drives their success in the hope of strengthening attributes within themselves.
