Topic: From Country Queensland to the Bridge of a Cruise Shipping Business: One Woman’s Journey

Introducing her talk with praise for Jessie Street, Ann talked about what had defined her public and working life from her days at the University of Queensland as a student activist to her time in England as a scholar. Her career took her from the trade union movement, to policy development to First Secretary in the Office of the Status of Women to Westpac and eventually to the CEO of Carnival with work in Indigenous communities on this journey.
