Kindness is key for Judith Leeson

For more than six decades, Echunga’s Judith Leeson AM has advocated for people without a voice.

Speaking when others are unable, Judith has long stood up against the systems that have undermined the needs of vulnerable populations, from the elderly in aged care to people with disabilities, and unemployed job seekers.

Her biggest weapons over her years in leadership roles in early childhood and disability education and career development are kindness and respect.
