Louise Miller Frost: Vinnies SA First Female CEO [Podcast]

The terrible circumstances of the last few months has contributed to making more women and children vulnerable. Among the range of critical services that Vinnies provide in South Australia is the Vinnies Women’s Crisis Centre which ensures women have support, safety and peace of mind for sound decision making within a calm, child friendly environment.

In episode 197 of Be The Drop, Louise Miller Frost, CEO of St Vincent De Paul, South Australia talks about starting her new role at Vinnies during the onset of covid-19, we discuss the importance of increased female representation in senior leadership and she explains the incredible importance of Vinnies services, including the Women’s Crisis Centre.
