THE HON JULIA GILLARD
As the first ever woman to serve as Australia's Prime Minister or Deputy Prime Minister, Julia Gillard is a fantastic role model for all Australian women.
She has an outstanding commitment to the education of all young people in Australia and with her alignment to many global education institutes, she is expertly placed to bring both her extensive knowledge to the Foundation as well as her passion and dedication to the betterment of education as a whole and for young women in particular.
Julia Gillard received worldwide attention and acclaim with her speech in Parliament in October 2012 on the treatment of women in public and professional life.
We are truly honoured to have her as the patron of our Foundation.
