Fostering Executive Women

QUT Graduate School of Business (GSB) and Fostering Executive Women (FEW) Alumni have offered me so much more than a post-graduate qualification. I have grown as an individual, challenged myself with new concepts and ideas, and been able to integrate and apply my learnings to enrich my career. During the last two years, I have been fortunate to attend FEW events and the annual QUT GSB Women on the Move workshops.

Fostering Executive Women (FEW) is an Australian professional women’s network for current and past female postgraduate students of the QUT Business School, known for its high-quality mentoring program and engaging networking events.

The women who make up the FEW committee are themselves QUT Business School postgraduate alumni and leaders in their chosen field. They are committed to helping women to achieve and be confident in knowing that they are the best version of themselves. This is achieved through the elite mentoring program available only to female alumni and current postgraduate students of the QUT Business School.

Since its inception in 2003, FEW has been a leader in challenging QUT Business School postgraduate students to take the next step towards achieving their professional goals. FEW delivers on this commitment by:

  • Providing QUT Business School Postgraduate women with access to high quality mentoring
  • Providing inspiring and thought-provoking leaders as speakers at FEW events
  • Developing a community of professional women who collaborate, support and inspire.


FEW provides significant opportunities to members including mentor programs, scholarships and continuing professional education. Our programs are open to female QUT Business School postgraduate current students and alumni, with support and collaboration provided by the wider business community.
