Leading Interviews is a series of conversations with women leaders about their career, gender equality, and women in politics and the media, produced by the Women’s Leadership Institute Australia.

In this episode, Carol Schwartz AO, Chair of the Women’s Leadership Institute Australia, speaks with Juliana Addison, an Australian Labor politician who was elected in 2018 to represent the electoral district of Wendouree in the Victorian Legislative Assembly. Juliana is also an alum of the University of Melbourne’s Pathways to Politics Program for Women.

Juliana speaks to Carol about the key drivers of her pursuit of public office, the pre-selection and campaign process, media representation of women in politics, and the need to create cultural change within Parliament to get better outcomes for our communities.
