Alicia Stephenson’s first introduction to management came in 2008 when she joined the Australian Army as a training Platoon Commander and it is there that she first developed and flourished as a leader under strenuous and difficult conditions.
Alicia now works as Education Manager at the Centre for Corrections Education with the Kangan Institute, helping prisoners further their education, something which Alicia is passionate about.
“I have a deep and valued love of helping marginalised groups access education and also have a great respect of the power of inclusion within all groups and denominations”, she says.
Alicia has dedicated much of her life to promoting the values of women and equality.
She has run both anti-bullying campaigns and ‘value of education’ campaigns within prisons. Whilst living in Rural Victoria, Alicia was also responsible for starting the Coalition of Military Spouses – a women’s group initiative that combats the prevalence of depression amongst rural women.
