Sheri invests a great deal of time in mentoring and coaching colleagues, leading by example in managing work-life balance. She works closely with HR to ensure that the best female talent is being given the chance to come through; her own team is comprised of almost two-thirds female employees. She has been involved with the Women’s Leadership Initiative since it was an informal network in the 1990s, right through its formalisation, and became one of two executive sponsors in 2011. Sheri has been a member of the Healthcare Business Association for over ten years, and has served in an industry advisory nature. She has also shared her perspective in a red carpet interview at the Women of the Year Event and continues to support the development of women through their programming efforts. She participates in and leads initiatives with international charity Dress for Success which helps women with one of the most fundamental barriers to success – what you wear. Similarly, she has focussed on enhancing interview skills with other not-for-profit organisations aimed at developing and supporting women, including GenHERation and Girls on the Run. She has spoken on various panels on gender diversity, and the professional and personal development of female employees.
