Novita empowers women

access_time2min read

Novita always strives to support girls and women living with disability to be their best, and to lead a fulfilling life.

And Novita has also become an employer of choice for women in health professions like speech pathology, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy.

Women play a critical role at Novita, in our leadership and in delivering services and supports for our customers and families.

In fact, more than 82 percent of our staff are women. Among them is Danielle Hanisch, who is Novita’s General Manager of Therapy and Family Services.

Danielle said Novita was a particularly positive workplace for young women starting their careers in the allied health disciplines.

“It’s a safe place for women to work, and they can develop their clinical expertise in an environment in which they’re making an important contribution to society,” she said.

“Novita also provides a leadership pathway for them – they can gain valuable experience and become clinical leaders and managers.

“Supporting women in leadership is a major cultural focus for Novita. It’s definitely a place where women can work in senior leadership and grow their careers in an organisation that genuinely makes a difference to people’s lives.”
