Macquarie staff and alumni recognised in 100 Women of Influence Awards
Five Macquarie University staff members and alumni have been recognised in The Australian Financial Review and Westpac 100 Women of Influence Awards for 2014, across the Public Policy, Young Leaders and Global categories.
Professor Emerita Ann Henderson-Sellers from the Department of Environment and Geography has been recognised in the “Global” category for her contribution to climate change research.
Professor Rosalind Croucher from Macquarie Law School (currently on leave as President of the Australian Law Reform Commission) has been recognised in the “Public Policy” category.
Alumnus Christine Nixon was also recognised in the “Public Policy” category, for her role as Chair of Good Shepherd Microfinance and Monash College.
Alumni Stephanie Lorenzo, CEO of Project Futures, and Jennifer Star, CEO of Tara.Ed, have also been recognised in the “Young Leade” category.
“To be selected as one of 100 Women of Influence for 2014 is a fantastic honour which I feel recognises not only my contribution but also that of all women in science, engineering and technology,” says Professor Henderson-Sellers. “Women can and do influence society every day—we need to applaud their, our, input and help girls and younger women succeed in non-traditional areas and roles.”
Now in its third year, the 100 Women of Influence Awards celebrate outstanding women from a wide variety of sectors across Australia.
