NSW Women of WARR Leadership Breakfast

The Waste Management & Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WMRR) invites you to our annual NSW Women of WARR Leadership Breakfast on Thursday, 20 May 2021 at the Hilton Sydney. This event is designed to celebrate women in our industry who are driving change, and in doing so, breaking down barriers and creating new career prospects for the next generation.






Minister for the Environment

Sussan Ley’s career path has been wonderfully varied, working odd jobs on the way to a pilot’s license, with roles as an air traffic controller, stock-mustering pilot and occasional shearer’s cook.
While raising three children on a family farm, ten years study led to a senior position at the Australian Taxation Office before entering federal politics in 2001. 

Serving the rural NSW electorate of Farrer since 2001, Sussan has also been allocated responsibility in a number of portfolio and policy areas, most recently as Minister for the Environment in May 2019.

Sussan regards it as an honour to represent regional Australia, ensuring she makes time to regularly travel through her electorate and around the country listening to the views and concerns of constituents.



Director, APrince Consulting (APC)

Anne Prince is a veteran of our industry having been employed in local government, community, industry and the commercial sectors prior to starting her own boutique consultancy – APC in 1997.

In 2010 Anne was voted as the Resources and Waste industry leader. A confessed workaholic, champion of girl power, queen of garbage and mother of recycling!
