A true trailblazer, inspiration and exemplar of gratitude, service and living a rich life.

World renowned for her work with women in Rwanda after the genocide, Professor Shirley Randell AO has had a fascinating and eminent career as an educator, CEO  and board director across the globe.

Dr Randell was recognised in the 2012 Inaugural Australian 100 Women of Influence Awards, the 100 World of Difference Awardees in 2013 by The International Alliance of Women, and the Inaugural Winner of the Sir John Storey Lifetime Achievement in Leadership Award by the Institute of Managers and Leaders Australia and New Zealand. She is an Officer of the Order of Australia and Distinguished Alumni of the Universities of Canberra and New England, Armidale, Australia.

In this fascinating podcast, Dr Randell talks to host Claire Braund about how her career literally went full circle, from teaching in remote Aboriginal communities with her husband at age 18, having four children by the age of 24, returning to study, divorcing and building her illustrious career as an educator, activist, CEO and board director.  After which, she returned to work in remote communities across the globe in Papua New Guinea, Asia and Rwanda to advance female education and equality.

Appointed to her first board at age 34 in the 1960s, Shirley cut a lonely female figure around the boardroom table, teaching her the true value of mentors and working with other women (she counts Joan Kirner, Jenny Blackburn and Susan Ryan amongst her mentors and colleagues) as well as the importance of working with men to achieve results for women.

Still working and serving hard at age 80, Shirley is the epitome of success, grace and gratitude.
