The Lean In Queensland Network is on a mission to abolish gender inequality in Australia.
We believe there is a compelling need for increased efforts to achieve gender equality across Queensland, Australia and the world.
Gender equality prevents violence against women and girls. It’s essential for economic prosperity.
Societies that value women and men as equal are safer, healthier, more innovative, prosperous and sustainable.
A proud feminist, with a personal mission to develop dynamic leaders and boost diversity at decision-making tables, Jilinda started her first Lean In Circle in 2014, and since then has lead seven circles as a community service initiative across four regional areas. Her vision for establishing Lean In Queensland is to increase awareness of gender bias, while challenging unacceptable practices and policies, and addressing the lack of women in leadership roles.
LeanIn.org have recently appointed Jilinda Lee as a Regional Leader. One of only two Lean In Regional Leaders in Australia to join their global Regional Leaders Program; it provides recognition and additional support for dedicated and experienced Circle Leaders to grow their Lean In networks.
