Leadership Interviews

The Australian Centre for Leadership for Women between 2000 and 2019 invited prominent national and international female and male leaders in different sectors to focus on how they became leaders, the forces that shape them and their vision and their reflections on leadership. These unedited interviews offer an insight into the individual’s values, leadership competencies and attributes.

The mission of ACLW is to enable the valuing of women and their advancement in workplaces. The interviews attempt to articulate this mission in the lived experience of the people interviewed. All of the interviews were conducted by the director of the Centre, Dr Diann Rodgers-Healey.

To commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the Centre, the 73 interviews have been compiled and brought together as a single collection. The information in the biography sections of each interview was correct when the interview was undertaken. Biographies have been sorted alphabetically by the surname of the leader (or the first person listed, when more than one leader is part of the interview.) Website links have mostly been removed, although if a link still seemed to be active, it was retained. No endorsement is made of the content of external websites.
