Katrina Fanning PSM

2014 - ACT Woman of the Year, ACT Australian of the Year Nominee 2017

Representing Australia playing rugby league for more than a decade, Katrina Fanning was the most capped female player in the world when she retired. A respected leader both on and off the field, Katrina was admired for her ability to get the best out of everyone in her team.

Today, Katrina is applying those well-honed leadership skills to champion the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in a range of settings – from employment to housing.

As an advisor to governments and corporations, Katrina is developing life-changing education, employment, health and other policies and programs to support Indigenous Australians.

She volunteers her time to support her local community through a range of activities – creating an indigenous showcase to promote local businesses, driving NAIDOC week celebrations and sitting on the board of Australian Rugby League Indigenous Council among them.

Katrina is determined to ensure Aboriginal people are part of the decision-making process – regardless of the topic of conversation.
