La Trobe University MBA student Janine Young from the Graduate School of Management has been chosen from an extensive global applicant pool to participate in the Daimler World Dialogue in Stuttgart, Germany this October.
Due to complete her Masters in 2012, Janine Young was appointed in the highly-esteemed position as the fourth Public Transport Ombudsman in Victoria in August 2010.
The World Dialogue is part of the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative
(GRLI) under the UN Global Compact. Automotive pioneer Daimler has joined the Global Compact Lead Group committing itself to taking a leading role in the economic world, actively support the UN Millennium Goals and to follow the Global Compact Blueprint.
The GRLI has the goal to develop the next generation of globally responsible leaders. The Daimler World Dialogue is a platform for globally responsible leaders of tomorrow to engage with business, industry and each other.
Ms. Young is honoured to be able to be part of this global event, stating:
‘The opportunity to participate in this forum is very exciting and I believe that, as a result of my current studies and my role as Victoria’s Public Transport Ombudsman, I will be able to make a constructive and passionate contribution to the forum.
Following the forum, I will look to implement actions which will have a positive impact on my organisation and on the organisations I work with.’
