To mark International Women's Day this year we are celebrating some of the women who make our College a world-leading institution for legal education and research.
Cris Alves is Human Resources Manager at the ANU College of Law. She has 15 years’ experience in recruitment, employee relations, career development, staff performance and conduct gained in technology, energy and tertiary sectors.
What motivates you?
Learning new skills, finding ways to solve problems and overcoming challenges.
What are you most proud of?
I’m proud of having the drive to pursue the things I want in life and for accepting myself for truly being myself.
Who is a woman you look up to?
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for her compassionate leadership.
What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
It is a day to celebrate women’s achievements but also a reminder that there are still women without access to education and struggling to keep themselves and their children safe. I hope one day they too celebrate International Women’s Day.
What advice would you give your more junior self?
Life is not a competition and everyone’s journey is different. If you are not enjoying your journey, work hard to build the life you want to live.
