We are very proud that GPE’s Board Chair Julia Gillard was included in this year’s list of 100 most influential and inspirational women by BBC News.

The list of 100 women for 2018 includes leaders, trailblazers and everyday heroes ranging in age from 15 to 94 and representing more than 60 countries. The BBC News website states that, “Julia was Australia's first female prime minister and now promotes education and leadership for women and girls.”

We feel proud that Julia Gillard has been the Chair of the GPE Board of Directors since 2014. In this role, she has helped to significantly raise GPE’s profile as well as mobilized increased political and financial support.

Her passion for education has encouraged her to advocate tirelessly for all children, and especially girls, in the world’s poorest countries to ensure they are given equal chances in life through a quality education.
