Kim Travers - Membership Officer

After joining the Australian Labour Party in the ‘90’s, it became obvious to Kim that women needed a fairer playing field to get preselected and supported into political office. Kim became an EMILY’s list member after learning about affirmative action, what had been achieved and the challenges still needing to be faced.

Kim has always been a Trade Union member and after many years of being a shop steward and delegate,  moved to Federal CPSU as an Organiser. Kim Travers has been an EMILY’s List volunteer in Queensland, Australian Capital Territory and Victoria for decades.

"My part time role as Membership officer is the most effective use of my organising, financial, training and theatrical skills I have acquired over the past 40 years."

Micaela Rynne - Communications Officer

Micaela graduated from her undergraduate degree, a Bachelor of Arts (Politics and International Studies) from the University of Melbourne in 2022. She will be completing her Master of Marketing Communications in 2024.

Prior to working for ELA, Micaela worked for three years as a Front End and Online Supervisor at Woolworths, but completed many volunteer leadership roles.
