We would like to congratulate Anna Rose and Nyadol Nyuon for being recognised as Australian Women of Influence in 2019. The award acknowledges Australian women who have fought for change and have encouraged other women in their industries.

Anna Rose is the Strategic Projects Officer for Farmers for Climate Action, an organisation that works to ensure farmers are key to climate change solutions. She previously co-founded the Australian Youth Climate Coalition and was the chair of its board. Rose also authored the book Madlands: A Journey to Change the Mind of a Climate Sceptic and is a lecturer and course convenor at the Australian National University. She was a finalist in the Australian of the Year Awards in 2015 and the Australian Geographic Society’s Conservationist of the Year at the same time.

Nyadol Nyuon (pictured) is a commercial litigator at Arnold Bloch Leibler and an advocate for the African Australian community, focusing on refugee settlement, the stereotyping of the Australian-Sudanese community and asylum seekers. Born in an Ethiopian refugee camp, Nyuon came to Australia as a refugee at the age of 18 and has since completed a Juris Doctor at the University of Melbourne. This recognition follows the Racism. It Stops With Me award from the Australian Human Rights Commission, the Harmony Alliance Award and the Tim McCoy Prize in 2018.

We are proud to have supported Anna Rose and Nyadol Nyuon in their outstanding changemaking.
