Meet the Board
Jake has been involved with AGA on and off since its inception. He has been chair of the AGA board since 2015. In that time AGA has grown considerably, secured long-term funding, moved to new premises and expanded services to members. Jake has also been involved in a number of other Canberra community organisations including the Meridian Club (way back in the 1990s) and the AIDS Action Council. Jake is a lawyer and a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Over 40 years of lived experience with gender identity confusion, and a member of AGA since 2010. This is Stuart’s 4th year on the board and 2nd year as Treasurer.
Kim is a retired medical laboratory scientist and public servant. She is the mother of two daughters, the youngest being a transgender teen and we discovered the AGA community in June 2017. It has become an integral part of our family and has provided invaluable support and connection with other young trans people and their families. Kim has joined the Board as a parent representative to give back what has kindly been given to us from AGA.
Isabel has been involved with a AGA for over 5 years as a volunteer, member, and employee. She is a PhD candidate in the Research School of Social Sciences at the Australian National University and interested in the relationship between feminism and gender diversity. Isabel works part-time for the AIDS Action Council as a Community Engagement Officer and is a member of the ACT Ministerial Advisory Council for LGBTIQ Affairs.
I am new to the board. I have been an enthusiastic and friendly member of AGA over the past year and I’m excited to give back to the community as part of the board team. I am interested in RPGs, op-shopping and boardgames.
