18:00 Wednesday 1 June
We are looking forward to our first Impact Series event, presenting leaders in their field to inspire and engage.
We begin with Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC, Governor of NSW.
Her Excellency will speak about The Power of Institutions in today’s world, her role as the Governor of NSW and using the Governorship to inspire and empower community.
After her keynote speech, there will be opportunity for questions. This is an amazing chance to hear from this inspirational leader in the intimate surrounds of the Club.
Her Excellency is the 39th Governor of New South Wales, commencing her five-year tenure on 2 May 2019. Prior to her appointment as Governor, she enjoyed a long and distinguished law career spanning 43 years, during which time she served as a role model for women in law at both the state and national level.
Appointed Queen’s Counsel in 1989, in 1993 she was made a judge of the Federal Court of Australia, the first woman to sit exclusively in that Court. In 1996, she achieved the distinction of being the first woman appointed to the New South Wales Court of Appeal and, subsequently, as the first woman to be appointed as its President. She served, on a number of occasions, as Administrator of the Government of the State of New South Wales.
She was made a Companion of the Order of Australia in the Australia Day Honours List on 26 January 2020 for “eminent service to the people of New South Wales, particularly through leadership roles in the judiciary, and as a mentor of young women lawyers”.
