WorkUP would like to welcome Padma Raman PSM, who commenced as ANROWS CEO in July. Padma joins the WorkUP Queensland steering committee and reference group.

Padma has a wealth of experience as a senior executive at both state and federal levels, and in 2018 was awarded the Public Service Medal. For the past 11 years, she has been Chief Executive of the Australian Human Rights Commission.

Prior to that she established and was chief executive officer of the Victorian Law Reform Commission for nine years. She has a Master of Laws in research focusing on the experiences of immigrant and Indigenous women under the Australian legal system.
