Convocation invites all graduates and other members to its first Ordinary Meeting for 2014
Convocation are delighted to present Winthrop Professor Carmen Lawrence as the Guest Speaker for the First Ordinary Meeting of 2014.
Dr Lawrence will speak on "An avalanche of change: Will universities as we know them survive the onslaught?"
After training as a research psychologist at the University of Western Australia and lecturing in a number of Australian universities, Dr Lawrence entered politics in 1986, serving at both State and Federal levels for 21 years. She was at various times WA Minister for Education and Aboriginal affairs and was the first woman Premier and Treasurer of a State government.
She shifted to Federal politics in 1994 when she was elected as the Member for Fremantle, and was appointed Minister for Health and Human Services and Minister assisting the Prime Minister on the Status of Women. She has held various portfolios in Opposition, including Indigenous Affairs, Environment, Industry and Innovation and was elected national President of the Labor Party in 2004.
Dr Lawrence retired from politics in 2007. She is now Director of the Centre for the Study of Social Change in the School of Psychology at the University of Western Australia and Chair of the Australian Heritage Council.
