Founding Director Sue Jeffery has stepped down from her position with the Attitude Foundation.
Sue was a key person in the setting up of the Foundation providing both high-level advice and importantly, securing ANZ as the Founding Sponsor.
Sue is a highly regarded, values-driven leader with more than 30 years’ experience in financial services. She has significant experience in driving organizational change and used her strong interpersonal skills as the Global Lead for Accessibility and Inclusion at ANZ to champion the employment of people with disability, resulting in recruitment of more than 500 people with a self-disclosed disability. In the first year of measurement, the number of people identifying with having a disability increased from 1.6% to 7.2%.
More recently Sue contributed her commercial and negotiation experience as part of the selection process of Taste Creative as the chosen producer of the Attitude Foundation’s pilot episode for the television series.
Attitude Foundation Chairman, Graeme Innes said Sue has had a major impact on the Foundation’s progress.
“I would like to acknowledge Sue’s outstanding contribution to the Foundation in both its set-up phase and progression to making a TV series. Sue was instrumental in securing ANZ’s support, as well as contributing her considerable commercial expertise as we developed the television series.”
“Sue has decided that it is time to let other’s become involved with the Foundation and part of that is to champion the inclusion of more people with disability onto the board.”
Sue will continue her strong interest in disability issues and the Attitude Foundation.
