From Brownies to the board room, what Moira Were can teach us about gender on boards.

Today on the Take on Board podcast, Helga is speaking to Moira Were about the role of women and gender in the board room and in decision-making.


Moira is on the boards of Scope Global Pty Ltd, Oikumene Foundation, Hen House Co-op and Collab4Good Pty Ltd.


Her list of previous boards includes Medical Board of SA, SA Fire and Emergency Services Commission; Southern Domestic Violence Service, Noarlunga Community Legal Services; Volunteering SA & NT.


Moira has worked from the kitchen table to the cabinet table and started her board career as a 19 year old youth volunteer representative on the Service to Youth Council board. She currently serves on the Scope Global board and is a ministerial appointment to the Entrepreneurship Advisory Board in South Australia.


Moira received an AM - order of Australia in 2019 for her community service to South Australia. And she was a Brownie!
