Jo Stewart-RattrayWhen I left Adelaide on QF 738 with a lump in my throat, knowing how significant this journey is in my life, I was blown away to observe that there was an all-female tech crew on the flight deck. What an auspicious start!

Last month, I wrote about the incredible opportunity to be part of the official Australian government delegation to the 62nd session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW62). The session begins this week and will extend through 23 March at UN headquarters in New York.

My trip is off to a great start: I had afternoon tea on Sunday with Minister Kelly O’Dwyer, Ambassadors Gillian Bird and Sharman Stone, Commissioners June Oscar and Kate Jenkins, and the rest of the Australian Delegation at Ambassador Bird’s residence. I was asked to speak about my journey to the Delegation and my roles with SheLeadsTech and ISACA more broadly.

An official reception was held to introduce the Delegation to civil society organizations present in New York, giving me another chance to socialize SheLeadsTech. The reception took place at the Australian Consulate General.

Already, this has been a memorable experience, and it is so exciting that CSW62 is about to formally begin! I’m looking forward to keeping the ISACA global community updated about the important work ahead.
