Corinne is passionate about the economic empowerment of migrant women, which started after having spent a period as a volunteer for UNHCR in Darwanaji Refugee Camp in Ethiopia. Since that time, she has worked for the State and Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing, the NSW Cabinet Office and the Centre for Social Impact. Corinne is also the former chair of the Australian Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Corinne has always been motivated by applying her skills and experience to delivering improved community outcomes. She is a Director of the Sydney Community Foundation and Co-Chair of Impact100 Sydney. She has previously served on the board of UN Women Australia.
Running her own conference and event management agency for 10 years allowed her to gain first-hand experience of the challenges and benefits of running your own business. This experience has given her unique insights on the various pathways to employment for people from diverse backgrounds, and the realistic challenges involved in entrepreneurship in particular.
Corinne has a BA in Social Work from the University of Sydney.
