Leonie Noble – International Women’s Day 2017
I am currently the National President of Australia’s Women In Seafood Board (WINSC) and have been involved in the Rock Lobster Industry in the Midwest and Abrolhos regions in Western Australia for 35 years.
What drives me – I have a passion for the seafood community at large and believe that the women that work in every facet of Australia’s amazing seafood industry are especially valuable. I have an unshakeable belief that everyone’s voice is equal and that it is so important to be able to hear them all. It is always about the people for me. Fish are just fish until Fishermen catch them to feed to population.
What I love about being a women in seafood – The people around me, the diversity of industry, the freedom in many ways to be able to be proud of the work that I do and hopefully be in a position to make a difference.
Favourite memorable moment – Sitting in a dinghy with my daughters all covered in squid ink, laughing like lunatics, so many moments so many memories.
