2024 Pamela Denoon Lecture

Ambassador Stephanie Copus Campbell AM, an influential advocate for Gender Equality, will be delivering the 2024 Pamela Denoon Lecture.

With an extensive background spanning the public, private, philanthropic, and community sectors in Australia and the Indo Pacific, Ms. Copus Campbell brings a wealth of experience to the table.

Having led Australia's bilateral aid programs and served in executive roles with organizations like CARE Australia and the Oil Search Foundation, Ms. Copus Campbell is a force to be reckoned with. Appointed as the Ambassador for Gender Equality by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Senator the Hon Penny Wong, she stands as a prominent figure advocating for the human rights of women and girls.

The Pamela Denoon Lecture, initiated in 1989 to honour the memory of Pamela Denoon, a stalwart champion of women's rights, serves as a powerful reminder of the strides made by women thanks to pioneers like her. Pamela's legacy, as the National Coordinator of Women’s Electoral Lobby and her dedication to promoting equality, continues to inspire. This impressive event aims to motivate and inspire women to engage with issues concerning women in Australia.
