Welcoming The Hon. Nicola Roxon to the Health Justice Australia board

We are delighted to announce that the Hon. Nicola Roxon has joined the Health Justice Australia Board.

Nicola is the Independent Chair of HESTA, the health industry’s superannuation fund and a non-executive director of Dexus and Lifestyle Communities and infrastructure fund, UTA. Prior to her non-executive career, Nicola was a lawyer, then Labor politician for 15 years, serving as Australia’s first female Attorney-General (2011-2012) and as Minister for Health and Ageing (2007-2011).

Her particular expertise lies in highly regulated industries, government, health and the not-for-profit sector. She maintains a close interest in good public policy and remains a passionate advocate for women.

Nicola has told us: ‘I’m particularly excited to be joining the HJA Board because I’ve always been interested in innovative organisations that champion substantial, structural change – this might sound boring to some people, but I believe it holds the key to making a real impact. Not to mention that health and justice bring together my two key areas of interest and expertise – perfect!’ Welcome Nicola.
