Kim Travers - Membership Officer

Kim Travers

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."
