Workshop Facilitator

Susan Baragwanath

Susan leads the team on Women’s Leadership with a proven record in education reform encouraging women to use their talents to make positive changes in their lives and the wider community. She has lost count of how many women she has coached and mentored over the years but is happy to take the credit for one who was a single mum at 16 (and again at 18) and went on to get a PhD in Chemistry discovering 5 new anti-malarial compounds.
