Join us for a very special leadership luncheon with one of our 2014 Australian Financial Review and Westpac 100 Women of Influence (Diversity Category) winners, Rabia Siddique.
Rabia is a criminal and human rights lawyer, a retired British Army officer, and a former terrorism and war crimes prosecutor. She is an author, trainer and professional speaker and mother of triplets.
In a terrifying ordeal that garnered worldwide attention, along with a male colleague, Rabia assisted with the rescue of two SAS soldiers from Iraqi insurgents in Basra. Her male colleague received a Military Cross for outstanding bravery, while Rabia’s part in the incident was covered up by the British Army and Government. In a fight for justice she brought a landmark discrimination case against the UK Ministry of Defence, and won. In 2006 Rabia was awarded a Queen’s commendation for her human rights work in Iraq and in 2009 was the Runner Up for Australian Woman of the Year UK.
Rabia is a Board Member of Kids Are Kids! Therapy and Education Centre Inc and an Ambassador for 100 Women, The Esther Foundation and Ishar Multicultural Women’s Health Centre. She is also a member of Australian and British Red Cross, UN Women, Law Societies of WA, England and Wales, Women Lawyers WA, the International Institute for Humanitarian Law and is an Associate Fellow of the Australian Institute of Management Western Australia.
This will be an interesting and informative luncheon to which you are most welcome to bring a friend, but remember to book early as this will be a very popular event.
