Let's build a gender-balanced world

Balance is not a women's issue, it's a business issue. The race is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, gender-balanced media coverage, a gender-balance of employees, more gender-balance in wealth, gender-balanced sports coverage ...

Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.

Photo of Tracey SpicerOver the past 30 years, journalist, author and broadcaster, Tracey Spicer, has anchored programs for ABC TV, Network Ten, Channel 9, Sky News and Radio 2UE, and written hundreds of columns for Fairfax and News Corp. She now amplifies the voices of others through the social enterprise, Outspoken Women.

In 2018, Tracey was awarded an Order of Australia medal for her work as the national co-founder of Women in Media, and as an ambassador for charitable and social welfare groups.

Tracey has written, produced and presented documentaries for non-government organisations on topics including female foeticide and domestic violence in Bangladesh, Kenya, Uganda, Papua New Guinea, and India.

She is an Ambassador for ActionAid, World Vision, Cancer Council NSW, The Full Stop Foundation, NSW Kids in Need and SISTER2sister, and is Patron of the Pancreatic Cancer Alliance.

Since October 2017, Tracey has been spearheading the #MeToo movement in Australia, producing award-winning investigative stories with Fairfax and the ABC. In March 2018 she created NOW Australia, a not-for-profit organisation aimed at helping anyone who has been sexually harassed in the workplace. Her tireless advocacy led to the creation of the world’s first national inquiry into sexual harassment in the workplace, by the Australian Human Rights Commission. Tracey’s memoir, The Good Girl Stripped Bare, became a bestseller within weeks of publication, while her essays have appeared in dozens of books including Women of Letters, She’s Having a Laugh, Father Figures and Unbreakable. Her TEDx Talk, The Lady Stripped Bare, has also attracted almost five million views globally.
