Ms Salthouse is interested in women’s education, particularly women with disability, and believes it is important for all people with a disability to be able to access employment and make an equal contribution to society.
“The University of Canberra is a great example of equity in education in that it promotes women to positions at the highest level within the University – that’s a very important role model,” she said.
Tom Karmel is the managing director of the National Centre for Vocational Education Research, and has previously held senior Federal Government positions in areas including education, employment and labour market research.
