Julia Gillard

Former Prime Minister of Australia, First Woman to Hold the Position & Chair of the Global Institute for Women's Leadership

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Julia Gillard Biography

Julia Gillard became Australia's first female prime minister in June 2010 and held office until 2013.

Born in the Welsh port town of Barry in 1961, Ms. Gillard migrated to Australia with her parents when she was 4. An outstanding student in her hometown, Adelaide, she became president of the Australian Union of Students at Melbourne University in 1983. She worked as a lawyer for a firm specializing in class actions and industrial relations, becoming partner at Slater and Gordon in 1990.

Moving into politics, she became the chief-of-staff to Victoria state opposition leader John Brumby, and then won a seat in parliament in 1998. Kevin Rudd entered parliament at the same time as Ms. Gillard, and they formed an alliance in 2006. While in the Rudd government she held several portfolios, including minister for employment and workplace relations, minister for education, and minister for social inclusion - as well as the deputy prime minister post.

It was in 2010 that Ms Gillard moved to the very top, ousting Mr. Rudd as he changed direction over a high-profile carbon trading scheme policy. She said she had initiated the challenge - which took many by surprise - because his government was losing its way.

Under Ms. Gillard, the government passed into law its clean energy bill, which introduced an emissions trading scheme, and also a mining tax aimed at boosting government revenue amid a resources boom. On asylum, Labor reversed policy, reopening offshore processing centers on Nauru and in Papua New Guinea as the number of boat arrivals climbed. On tobacco, it enacted into law legislation that put strict controls on packaging, effectively removing branding, in a bid to reduce smoking.

In April 2018, Ms Gillard was appointed Inaugural Chair of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at Kings College, London. In 2014, Ms Gillard was appointed chair of the Global Partnership for Education, a leading organization dedicated to expanding access and quality education worldwide. Ms Gillard is a non-resident Distinguished Senior Fellow with the Center for Universal Education at the Brookings Institution in Washington.
