La Trobe Honors Distinguished Alummni

I'm honoured to have been recognised with a Distinguished Alumni Award from La Trobe University. 

My work over the past thirty years in gender equality, rural community development and sustainable agriculture began with my Arts and then Social Work degrees at La Trobe University.  I would not have been able to do the work I have done if it were not for free university education in the 1970s that made it possible for thousands of young rural women like me to be first-generation graduates.

My contribution to the Rural Women’s Movement in Australia, to sustainable agriculture, to rural leadership development, and recently the democracy project Voices for Indi is a result  of that investment made in me.

I am delighted  to have been recognised along with  journalist, author, ABC Melbourne radio and television presenter Virginia Trioli, SecondBite founder Simone Carson, Professor John Hopper AM and young achievers Dr Batool Albatat and AFL Women's star Daisy Pearce. I thank La Trobe University for recognising my work.
