LWIB September event speaker Jamila Rizvi

Not Just Lucky – Jamila Rizvi

Why WOMEN do the work but don’t take the credit.

Australian women are suffering from a crisis of confidence about work, captives to a voice inside their heads that says they’re not good enough.

Jamila is a writer, presenter and commentator, appearing regularly on The Project, 3AW, Today, ABC Melbourne, The Drum, Radio National and Q & A.

Her best-selling book Not Just Lucky, a career manifesto for millennial women, was published by Penguin in June 2017. Former Prime Minister Julia Gillard has called it, ‘feisty and inquisitive, a fresh take on modern feminist issues.’ Jamila’s second book, an anthology of letters called The Motherhood, was released in April 2017.

In 2014 Jamila was named one of Cosmopolitan’s 30 Most Successful Women Under 30 and in 2015, was listed as one of Australia’s 100 Women of Influence by the Australian Financial Review. In 2017 she was included in the Weekly Review’s top ten list of young rising stars in Melbourne.

Prior to entering the media, Jamila worked in politics as an advisor to the Rudd and Gillard governments. Jamila is an Ambassador for CARE Australia and a board member for public policy think tank, The McKell Institute and the Melbourne’s Writer’s Festival.

Jamila holds bachelor degrees in law and commerce from the Australian National University and was named Young Alumnus of the Year in 2014. She lives in Melbourne with her husband Jeremy and toddler Rafi.
