The Hon Leeanne Enoch MP

Minister for Environment and the Great Barrier Reef, Minister for Science, and Minister for the Arts

A proud Quandamooka woman originally from North Stradbroke Island, Leeanne Enoch became the first Aboriginal woman ever elected to the Queensland Parliament after winning the seat of Algester at the 2015 state election.

Leeanne is the current Queensland Minister for Environment and the Great Barrier Reef, Minister for Science, and Minister for the Arts. Previously, she has held portfolio responsibilities for Housing and Public Works, Innovation and the Digital Economy, and Small Business.

Leeanne is also recognised for her strong sense of social justice, which is supported by her remarkable ability to listen to the needs of others and turn issues into positive actions.

Ashleigh Morris

Chief Executive Officer, Circular Economy

Passionate about transforming global systems Ashleigh actions ideas that engage, collaborate and advocate change. Ashleigh is an experienced Academic, Board member, Environmental Management Consultant and Circular Economy CEO. Sounds shiny right? What you may not know is that Ashleigh was a high school drop-out, she battles with mental health problems and is now trying to balance leading a quickly scaling company with an unexpected baby on the way. Now that’s a little more real.

Jaine Morris
Chief Executive Officer, Circular Economy

Jaine spent the majority of her career working in some of the most geographically hostile and isolated parts of our country as a remote area nurse. Isolation was a great teacher of value for Jaine, she realised how much she needed connection and how little she needed things. In pursuit of this, Jaine made the bold decision to change careers and is now the COO of The Circular Experiment. Sounds like a seamless transition right? Throw into the mix a five month stay in rehab and you get a much clearer picture of the rocky path she had to traverse to find her groove today
