Striving to make a difference in our world

Lisa Baker's Presentation

Lisa Baker MLA Maylands talks at the Perth Advocates for the Earth Inc fundraising and educational forum titled, "Can We Make A Difference" on the 24th August 2013.


100% of funds raised ($6,150) were donated to the Barristers Animal Welfare Panel to help them continue their work in improving animal welfare legislation in Australia and beyond.


Lisa was first elected to the WA parliament in 2008 and was re-elected in 2013. She is Chair of the Australian Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians Committee. During her first term she was a member of the Education and Health Standing Committee and WA Labor's Spokesperson for Community Mental Health. Currently she is WA Labor's Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Women, Small Business and Communities.


In 2010 Lisa successfully presented a new Platform on Animal Welfare to the WA Labor state conference. In 2012 WA Labor Leader, Mark McGowan released the WA Labor's discussion paper written by Lisa, 'Strengthening Animal Welfare in WA' and a subsequently policy to mandate the Australian Model Code of Practice for Free Range Poultry (eggs), Stocking Density'. There are more policies to come! Lisa is a strong advocate for the community sector and animal welfare in her role as a member of parliament. She is also an executive with a track record in delivering outcomes for community and businesses in Australia and internationally. She has successfully completed major projects and led the implementation of national policies and programs to drive public and private sector reform and build institutional and community capacity in Australia, Asian and Pacific countries e.g. Indonesia, India and Nepal.


Her passion is horses, and specifically, dressage. She holds the highest level of Australian Dressage judging qualification and is completing her International Para Equestrian Dressage Judging qualification.
