Exciting news from The Parenthood

We’re so excited to introduce you to our three newest board members, who are helping to support the Parenthood to be a strong voice for parents.

Jo Briskey

Jo is former Chief Executive Officer of The Parenthood and has over a decade of experience in advocacy, strategy, policy development, stakeholder engagement and political campaigning. Under her guidance The Parenthood grew to a community of over 65,000 members. We’re so pleased to have Jo’s continued support and guidance.

Georgina Dent

Georgina Dent is an author, journalist, editor, former lawyer and advocate for women’s empowerment and gender equality. She is the contributing editor of Women's Agenda, Australia's leading publication for career-minded women and has a fortnightly column in The Sun Herald & The Age on Sunday.

Megan O'Connell

Megan is one of Australia’s leading policy experts, with experience across the entire education spectrum – early childhood, schooling and vocational and higher education. Her work frequently underpins policy that improves outcomes for young Australians.

Megan is also acting Spokesperson for The Parenthood following the resignation of Alys Gagnon. A big thank you to Alys for all your work over the last year, and best of luck in your new role supporting Senator Raff Ciccone.

That’s enough about us – we’d love to hear from you.
