Licia Heath is the CEO of Women for Election Australia (WFEA) a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation encouraging and supporting more women to succeed in Australian politics.

The former Wentworth by-election candidate began her role at the WFEA last December, and believes the NGO’s non-partisan approach is the perfect platform to ensure Australia has a more gender-balanced, representative Parliament in coming years.

She put her hand during the high-profile Wentworth by-election, now Licia Heath wants more women to follow.
