In Episode 9 of ‘From A to Me’ Melanie Sanders champions female leadership and senior management in corporate Australia. A partner at Bain & Company, Melanie heads Bain’s Melbourne Office and leads the firm’s Consumer Products and Retail Practice. She has an MBA from Melbourne Business School, a Bachelor of Science from Melbourne University and she is a member of the organisation Chief Executive Women.
Melanie addresses the lack of women in senior leadership in corporate Australia and strives to “remove the barriers” by getting more women into senior positions so they can become role models with the power and influence to change things for the next generation.
Drawing on her experience as a young graduate working in male-dominated heavy industrials, the perspective and resilience Melanie gained from this has remained a core part of her approach to her work and personal life ever since.
