On Thursday 16 February, at ‘An Evening with Leadership WA’, our Alumni, Board and special guests came together to recognise and celebrate exemplary leadership in Western Australia.

We were privileged to honour Anjie Brook (Signature 2015), as the 2022 Distinguished Fellow and Professor Lyn Beazley AO, as the 2022 Honorary Fellow – both recognised as selfless leaders who have shaped positive change in WA in countless ways.

Anjie, who is the Executive Manager - Education, Youth and Leisure at YMCA WA, is a highly accomplished leader who has driven a range of important development initiatives for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; strengthening and empowering communities in remote regions of our State. She spoke about defining her leadership legacy and the compass it provides her in anchoring to the present while propelling towards the opportunities of the future.

Lyn is a distinguished neuroscientist, champion for gender diversity and policy-shaper in science and technology, with her work being highly respected in WA, across Australia and internationally. She spoke about her leadership journey and the defining, but often unexpected, opportunities she said yes to along the way.

We warmly congratulate Anjie Brook and Professor Lyn Beazley on their well-deserved recognition.
