2024 Pamela Denoon Lecture

Ambassador Stephanie Copus Campbell AM, an influential advocate for Gender Equality, delivered the 2024 Pamela Denoon Lecture.

The challenge of achieving gender equality is a monumental one, but we must continue to strive towards it. According to some measures, it will take 131 years to reach full parity globally. That’s why it’s essential to have strong leaders who can advocate for change and outline a vision for achieving gender parity. Stephanie Copus Campbell, Australia’s Ambassador for Gender Equality, is one such leader who is well placed to do just that.

Recently, NFAW celebrated the annual Pamela Denoon Lecture, where Copus Campbell gave the keynote address. and inspired all attending with her brilliance, passion and vision for leadership on gender equality within the Australian Government and multilateral organizations.

Prior to her current role, Copus Campbell worked across the public, private and philanthropic sectors, including as a founding Director on the Femili PNG Board providing services to family and sexual violence survivors.

The Pamela Denoon Lecture is a partnership between the Denoon Family, the National Foundation for Australian Women, and the ANU Gender Institute. Achieving gender parity will take a community, and we’re excited to hear Copus Campbell’s insights on how we can all work together to make it happen. NFAW thank the Denoon family for their years of support in honour of Pamela Denoon one of our early trailblazers on gender equality here in Australia.

The Pamela Denoon Lecture, initiated in 1989 to honour the memory of Pamela Denoon, a stalwart champion of women’s rights, serves as a powerful reminder of the strides made by women thanks to pioneers like her. Pamela’s legacy, as the National Coordinator of Women’s Electoral Lobby and her dedication to promoting equality, continues to inspire. This impressive event aims to motivate and inspire women to engage with issues concerning women in Australia.
