Using the 'joining gene' in your pathway to the board room with Linda White - Episode 21 Take on Board

    • Careers

Today on the Take on Board podcast, Helga interviews Linda White.

Linda describes herself as having done heaps, she rarely says no, and she firmly believes you are never to old learn new things.

She's on the National Executive for the Australian Labor Party, the executive of the Australian Council of Trade Unions, the National Executive of the Australian Services Union. And she's also on the board of the Chifley Research Centre, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, the MCG Trust, and the Portable Long Service Leave governing board.

She was formerly on the board of Legal Super, the Royal Botanic Gardens, 200 Gertrude Street, Footscray Community Legal Service and the Australian Social Inclusion board.

Being on high-profile boards means dealing with media scrutiny. Linda explains to Helga how this can help a board stay focused and how one of the best chairs she ever worked with made his impact on her.
