Tiffiny Lewin is one of our five successful business women from industries outside of banking and finance taking part in the inaugural round of the Equilibrium Program.
"What's exciting about the Equilibrium Program is the amazing opportunity to learn so broadly in the first year. It's a truly unique pathway that allows me to leverage my 25 year career."
Tiffiny wanted to expand her horizons, but wanted to ensure she could continue to leverage her 25 years' experience driving commercial outcomes and leading teams in the fast moving consumer goods industry. Now part of the Equilibrium Program she can expand her skills and add value in new ways.
"Banking has won me over hook, line and sinker - there is so much amazing work going on to enhance how we help consumers and businesses achieve their goals. I also get to participate in Westpac Group's Employee Action Groups for Women and the LGBTI community, and every event or initiative I get involved in gives me pride, as well as allowing me to connect with and support others in the organisation."
Since joining the Equilibrium program in early 2015, one of the areas Tiffiny has worked in includes the Victorian Commercial team where she has learnt about art and science of banking.
