St Margaret’s partner with Pitcher Partners and Yabbr to enhance careers

St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School has announced two new corporate partnerships, with leading accounting and business advisory firm Pitcher Partners and communications technology company Yabbr.

St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School has announced two new corporate partnerships, with leading accounting and business advisory firm Pitcher Partners and communications technology company Yabbr.

The partnerships reflect St Margaret’s commitment to developing innovative careers and employability programs for its students and helping its young women to identify and develop the necessary skills to participate, thrive and lead in their chosen careers. 

The partnerships also connect Pitcher Partners and Yabbr with outstanding students, allowing them to bring the brightest minds into their business through internships, as well as mentor and support the next generation of leaders through St Margaret’s school-based programs including Beyond the Panama, the Broadening Horizons Conference and the Aspiring Young Women’s Networking events. With the support of Yabbr, St Margaret’s will grow eSports as an extracurricular activity and boost the burgeoning Girls in Gaming initiative.

St Margaret’s Principal Ros Curtis said the partnerships were another exciting initiative enabling students to access real-world educational opportunities and develop their skills to meet the needs of today’s employers.

“St Margaret’s has, for a number of years now, been focused on delivering innovative careers and employability programs for its students and helping young women to identify and develop the necessary skills to participate, thrive and lead in a global economy.

“Pitcher Partners and Yabbr’s support will provide more opportunities for our students to develop these highly sought after skills, as well as the chance to access work experience, giving them a leading edge when it comes to their future careers,” Ms Curtis said.

For Pitcher Partners, the partnership reflects the firm’s commitment to ensuring a diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce and investing in the future of curious, talented people to help them reach their full potential.

Pitcher Partners’ Partner Kylie Lamprecht said: “Ours is a dynamic workplace, always open to new ways of thinking and doing. The partnership with St Margaret’s is a practical example of how we work with our local community to provide opportunities for engagement as a pathway to a rewarding career that has a tangible impact on both the individual and the clients we work with.

“At Pitcher Partners, collaboration is at our core and we love partnering with organisations to build better relationships, better results and better career opportunities together,” Kylie said.

Yabbr Founder James Stewart said, “Yabbr is proud to be the foundation sponsor for St Margaret’s eSports and this Australian first initiative, Girls in Gaming AU.

“Not only does an all-female eSport league provide a safe space for young women to game and collaborate, but we also see this as a grassroots approach to encourage young women to explore the various careers in the technology sector of which females are grossly underrepresented.

“On a personal note, as part of this great partnership, I received an open invitation to play Mario Kart, a wholesale win all-round,” he said.
