Meet the scientist and former political staffer who is working hard to get more women to the top - while sharing her love for books.

Sydney-sider Fiona Glaskin planned to move to Canberra for three years to study, but 20 years later she’s still living and working in the capital. A trained scientist, she joined the British Foreign Office as their Science Advisor, before becoming Chief of Staff to Joe Hockey and Senior Adviser on Public Policy to Malcolm Turnbull. Now, Fiona now works as Operations Lead for the Corporate Services group at KPMG, and runs her book subscription service Bibliophiles. Here, she talks running with her rescue dog, escaping to the snow to stay sane, and the importance of raising her son to respect women.

I joined Future Women because I love women supporting women, working together to create a better future for everyone. Attending the Future Women Leadership Summit demonstrated the depth and breadth of amazing women in Australia; women with diverse backgrounds who have followed their passion.

You’ve hit the glass ceiling. And our paywall.

Help us smash it by becoming a Future Woman for as little as $4 a month.
