Danielle Kamien, a digital marketing professional with over 15 years’ experience in both the corporate and not for profit sectors, is our new Board Observer.
Danielle thrives on creating meaningful change through the work she delivers.
"NCJWA Vic empowers women to achieve their own personal goals and provides opportunities to those less fortunate. I have always lived my life and have been teaching my children to be kind and thoughtful to everyone around them, regardless of background."
Starting her career at ANZ as a Graduate, Danielle held roles within the Human Resource, Marketing and Digital departments. After a 10-year tenure, Danielle made the switch to not for profit. She was the Digital Project Lead for Relationships Australia Victoria, and later this month will be starting a new position as Marketing Manager for the Breast Cancer Network Australia. On top of everything, she is also a mother to two young boys, and enjoys doing barre and participating in fun runs! When asked what the three things she loves about her current role are she said, “what I love most is its mission. It gets me out of bed every day, knowing my work may help people who are struggling with mental health or relationship issues; assisting with the digital transformation strategy and the workplace flexibility.”
Some of Danielle’s career highlights are project managing the redevelopment of websites for two organisations and having her work presented at a conference in Vienna.
From her involvement with the Observership Program, she is hoping to learn how a board operates, from governance to setting strategy within organisations. “To compliment my role as Board Observer at NCJWA Vic with training from the Australian Institute of Company Directors and Ethics Centre is an amazing opportunity!” she says.
On top of everything, she is also a mother to two young boys, and enjoys doing barre and participating in fun runs!
She finds Ash Barty inspirational, “her achievements on the court are enough for her to inspire me, but in fact that’s not what inspires me. She had the courage to subvert expectation by stepping away from tennis at 25 as the best player in the world and show women that they can forge their own path, whatever that looks like for them.”
Danielle is very excited for the year ahead, observing on the board at the NCJWA Vic, surrounded by inspirational women, as well as working on a major strategic project.
"The directors on the board inspire me – to give back to the community in this way, attending board meetings and carrying out duties on top of their own jobs or family life is really uplifting and empowering."
