Ashleigh Streeter-Jones (MDipl '18) is incredibly passionate about diversity in public decision making. A writer, speaker and activist, she believes women and persons of all genders deserve a seat at every table where decisions are being made.
This week's guest is Ashleigh Streeter-Jones. She believes that there should be more young people involved in policy and public decision making and is working hard to make this happen.
In this raw and delicate discussion about what it’s like to push back against the rolling tide of inequality, Ash explains how at times young women feel simply overwhelmed. And how maintaining her energy, whilst also honouring her passion, has come at a considerable cost. Audacious and energetic, she has already inspired many young girls to get politically active.
Each year the Australian Financial Review presents its list of the leading women influencing Australia’s culture, economy, law, politics and society. This year more than 10 young women were named in the list. We wanted to find out who they are, how their work influences and relates to young people’s experiences of employment and transitions, and what visions they hold of young people’s futures in Australia.
Ashleigh Streeter encourages millennials everywhere to intentionally identify their passions and take action for good. Her philosophy? Reject the traditional definition of success, and forge a path that’s aligned with your own values. It’s cool to care. So care a lot, and just do it.
