CEO (Volunteer), Half the Sky Australia Ltd
“Visiting an orphanage for the first time, I wanted to pick every child up, hug them, love them, and take them home. But I knew I could not. Instead, I dedicated my time and expertise to helping find the funds and the friends that OneSky needed (and still needs!) to bring love and kisses into the lives of all those children.” Before joining OneSky, Deanne had a long corporate career with McDonald’s, including as Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Training & Development in the Australian company and international roles in Asia. She has served on several Australian Boards and chaired the 1998 Review of the Affirmative Action (Equal Opportunity for Women) Act and chaired the Ministerial Advisory Board for the Commonwealth EEO Agency. Deanne holds a Bachelor of Business and a Master of Arts. She lives in Melbourne with her husband, Guy and son, Jack.
