Julie Bignell is the Deputy Chair of Care Super, Director of the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors, and a Director at Austin Health.


She's formerly been a director of the North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation, and Workplace Health and Safety Queensland. Julie's an experienced committee chair and she's chaired committees on risk corporate governance, member and community engagement and human resources and industrial relations issues.


She got her start as a Cole’s ‘check out chick’ and says, “my understanding of boards and how organisations work really came from lived experience of working". She was intrigued, and wanted in and she hasn’t looked back as she tells Helga in this episode.
