In March 2019, Fiona Stanley AC, Governor of The George Alexander Foundation, and Elise Bowen, a Murdoch University and GAF alumna, discussed 'taking risks and embracing uncertainty'.
From overcoming mental health issues to breaking gender boundaries, Elise and Fiona shared advice and lessons they learnt during their career journeys. "Now I am much more comfortable making myself uncomfortable!" said Elise on travelling and working overseas. Reflecting on her journey since graduation, Elise encouraged scholars to seek new opportunities, no matter how daunting, "putting yourself out of your comfort zone is necessary for personal growth".
