As a senior executive at Australia’s Westpac Group, she has led efforts to bring increased equality to products and policy, for example by reforming loan assessments to ensure being on maternity leave does not count against applicant couples. She is also enhancing what Westpac does for people experiencing key life moments like Divorce and Separation and having a baby.
