An unforgettable experience with AXA

As you may already know, the Great Global Adventure is an adventure game allowing the winner to be involved in two six-weeks internship placements, one six-weeks humanitarian opportunity and a unique around-the-world experience of up to 12 months.

Chelsie Kumar, a 21 year-old Australian student from Brisbane, in her penultimate year of Law studies (Honours) Media and Communication degree, was chosen as the winner of the second AXA Great Global Adventure’s edition. This year, she has chosen to explore 3 key themes during her time as the Great Global Adventurer:

  • Woman at AXA, to learn more about how AXA Group encourages an inclusive workforce to professional development.

  • Digital Innovation, and how fundamental digital innovation is in AXA’s transformation.

  • Early Careers, to explore how AXA Group supports, develops and empowers them.

Janina Norton's portrait

'As a young woman travelling the world solo and learning all about the women of AXA, Chelsie is a fantastic role model empowering other women to take on their own great adventures. At AXA Investment Managers, we know that having a more gender balanced workforce and helping women to progress into senior roles is vitally important, not only because it is the right thing to do but also because it’s essential to the commercial success of our business.'
— Janina Norton, Head of Employee Engagement

In her discovery, Chelsie will have the opportunity to participate in forums, interview or meet leaders, graduates and alumni to discover more about AXA’s commitments and culture.
