I am an experienced organisational and community leader with a keen interest in a wide range of local, national and global issues – particularly those involving equal opportunity and human rights. I am a skilled communicator, educator, leadership developer, team-builder, networker and influencer – and I am frequently invited to speak at a diversity of public and private events and in the media.

I commenced my 5-year term as the Commissioner for Equal Opportunity in South Australia at the end of May 2016. Prior to this appointment, I served as Chief Executive Officer of the Leaders Institute of SA – the renowned leadership development organisation I established and grew over 13 years. I’m currently also the chairperson of the Australian Council of Human Rights Authorities and I serve on the advisory boards of the Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA - SA &NT) and Play By The Rules. I’m an Ambassador for Time for Kids inc.

I hold an adjunct position as Associate Professor at the University of SA (in the Business School). I have also served as a member of the 3-person SA Remuneration Tribunal (which sets remuneration for the judiciary, Members of Parliament, statutory officers and elected local government officials in SA). I chaired the SA Government's Voices of Women Board for 3 years (until mid-2014). I have also served, with the Vice Chancellors of all SA Universities, on the Higher Education Council, and on the SA Premier's Round Table on Sustainability.

I hold a PhD in psychology from the University of Adelaide, for which I received a University Medal for Doctoral Research Excellence. I also received a University Medal for my undergraduate/Honours performance at the University of Adelaide. Throughout my career I have been honoured to receive some other prestigious awards. These include a Telstra Business Woman of the Year (SA Finalist) award and an Australian Leadership Award.
