We are delighted to hear that Ellie Church (BASc Economic Studies and GSD, 2020), Suzanna Jones (BASc History and GSD, 2020) and Mia Sannapureddy (BASc GSD, 2020) have recently been appointed members of the Changemakers Council.
ExponentialChangemakers is a start-up offering always-on, affordable community, coaching, and early-career support for women who want to change the world. They offer free membership as well as tiered levels of support and are actively recruiting new members. The Changemakers Council is a collective of ambitious early-career changemakers who have a passion for building a career development community and network of support for women in the early stages of their careers.
Ellie, who is currently a Policy and Delivery Advisor at the Ministry of Justice, shared her thoughts on becoming a member of the Council:

“Having overcome a fair amount of obstacles, I hope to be able to share my experiences to support and empower other young women on their career journeys towards social impact. I understand how important it can be to have a safe space where you can be yourself, unapologetically, and I hope to help create that space within the Council and the organisation.”
In March, Ellie spoke on the ‘Purposeful Roles: Routes to Advancing Purpose’ panel at the first ConnectHER+ event, organised by ExponentialChangemakers and focused on ‘Sharing Purpose in Action’. Reflecting on the event, Ellie said:
"I feel grateful that I got to share my experiences exploring my purpose and how that fits into my career. It was inspiring to listen to others' stories and feel wholeheartedly supported by the audience."
