Palm Beach, Australia Number of staff: I have continued to break the barriers of cultural expectations and gender roles at work and became more involved with work and organisations, to enhance my knowledge and continue to contribute the best I can.
My most recent involvement in environmental policy development was as a member of the C20 Expert Review panel on sustainability for the G20 summit held in Australia in November Significant contributions were made to the climate change debate by this group and the role of gender in sustainable development.
In the I undertook the leadership of the Global Reporting Initiative GRIwhere I worked closely with corporate and government to oversee sustainability reporting. I am currently on the Advisory Board on the Centre for Gender Economics, looking closely at the relationship between Women participation in the labour force and economic growth.
Jeffrey Sach for example helped me to better understand populations and the need to look closely at the global picture for inclusive growth. I joined the waste industry as Director on the Board of Waste Service NSW Australia in the yeardeveloping a waste to resource strategy and advocating the better use of landfills and the necessity of recycling as a way to avoid burial and extend the life of waste by converting to useful green measures, i.
Here I worked in a highly technical and male oriented field of commercial private sector collectors and contractors. My responsibility was to manage and oversee the safety of the state assets and holdings owned by the government as well as economic and social political policies to bring about the required changes to legislation and practices.
This experience served me well to understand triple bottom management and to govern accordingly the waste operations in companies and society in a sustainable manner. On a personal level however it was very challenging as the waste industry players are unaccustomed to having women in leadership positions, the unconscious bias that women face as a result of cultural perceptions makes it hard to express opinions and gain respect even when the appointment is made by parliament and under merit.
I was bringing into the role my experience as a senior public servant and head of International Trade for a State government as well as entrepreneurial skills and corporate expertise in the finance industry.
When I travelled on missions to Italy I developed a specific interest in the transfer of technologies, environmental innovation and manufacturing capabilities, which the Torino environmental and industrial park was developing.
I needed a partner with an engineering background and succeeded in attracting Phillip Isaacs to join me in a new business to be called AZPI.
This was the birth of our private venture recycling tyres out of landfills and manufacturing rubber. Through our work, we create jobs and local green products. We also work with local communities and legislators at the federal level.
I subsequently also worked on the Australian Waste Policy, providing recommendations for a more sustainable development of this industry and greener options of disposal. It was a journey which was wrought with impediments and required both capital and technical expertise in government waste and recycling policies.
My partner and I worked hard to learn about our new engineering project and cooperated with partners from transport and logistics to conduct a feasibility study for the project to go ahead.
My making a successful presentation to the July Off the Road Waste Tyre Conference lead to my engagement as a consultant to National Power where I undertook a detailed study of access to the waste tyre resources, recovery logistics, recycling plants and downstream products manufacturing from the existing major mining companies.
I created the Green Rubber brand and economic model for the sustainable disposal of mining tyres in remote locations.
This way, I could ensure that an industry was born out of the Off the Road waste that was profitable and green and had a positive social impact by providing new jobs to locals and training for the innovative recycling plants.Experienced Platform Manager with a demonstrated history of working in the consumer goods industry.
