Sarah Lux-Lee: Australia’s 100 Women of Influence

John Monash Scholar Sarah Lux-Lee has been announced as one of The Australian Financial Review and Westpac’s 2014 100 Women of Influence. Sarah, recipient in the Young Leader category, received the award in recognition of her work in the field of intellectual property, her efforts to advance women’s professional development, and her work with university students to increase their awareness and interest in pursuing careers in the public service.

In its third year, the 100 Women of Influence Awards aim to increase visibility of women’s leadership in Australia. Women are selected on their achievements and contribution to their field and category. A hundred winners are chosen across ten categories: board/management, innovation, public policy, business entrepreneur, diversity, young leader, global, social enterprise or not for profit, philanthropy and local/regional.

Sarah is currently pursuing a Master of Public Administration at Columbia University. Co-founder of the Professional Women’s Forum and The Social Interface, she was previously the National Copyright Manager for the Australian school and TAFE sectors.

The 2014 John Monash Scholar was an Adjunct Lecturer in the law faculty of the University of New South Wales, where she taught at the intersection between law and social justice, delivered guest lectures in intellectual property and information technology law, and provided academic supervision to students undertaking internship placements in NGOs, community legal centres and research centres.

Sarah is the second John Monash Scholar to be honoured in this manner.  Recently-announced 2015 Scholar Dr Phoebe Williams was named in the list in 2013.  Foundation Chairman Jillian Segal AM and Director Dr Jane Wilson were recognised in the inaugural list in 2012.
