Nancy Waites

Nancy has diverse working experience across the public, private and non profit sectors. The unifying link is a passion for social justice and an enjoyment of working with people from other cultures and backgrounds.

She worked for over five years in the Commonwealth public service, in the private sector as a management consultant and then a marketing manager, as policy advisor to Labor’s Parliamentary Secretary for Social Inclusion and for five years headed up World Vision Australia’s Government Relations team.

Nancy founded and runs Canberra en français magazine – a bilingual French-English magazine telling local stories with a French language connection. She also established her local residents association and remains an active member of its leadership group, and is on the board of the Alliance Française de Canberra.

In her spare time, she enjoys bushwalking and skiing with her husband and their two boisterous children.
