Sarah Abbott

Head of Diversity, Leadership & Inclusion

University of Sydney

I have been a member of NEEOPA for over 7 years now through a number of organisations.  The connections, network, sharing of leading practices as well as collaboration has been a great source of support for me in a space that is continually evolving and maturing.

NEEOPA has also provided an opportunity for me to pay it forward by being an active member of the executive for a number of years and providing insights from a University perspective at a couple of forums.  In what is often a challenging space, NEEOPA provides a vital role of sharing and connection.
