Media release: Former CEW president Sam Mostyn to become Australia’s next governor-general 

Chief Executive Women (CEW) congratulates former CEW president Sam Mostyn AO on the announcement she will become Australia’s next governor-general. 

CEW president Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz says Sam is a visionary leader who transformed CEW’s advocacy agenda at a critical time for Australian women. 

“As the president of CEW from 2021-2022, Sam expanded and strengthened the organisation’s advocacy agenda, pushing for government to place care at the centre of the Australian economy, something we continue to call for ahead of this year’s federal budget,”she says. 

“During her tenure, Sam was influential in government advocacy that saw the reinstatement of the single parenting payment, the expansion of Commonwealth paid parental leave and landmark investment in affordable early childhood. 

“As a highly empowering and consultative leader, Sam will no doubt excel in her new role as Governor-General.  

“CEW calls for diverse women leaders at all decision-making tables across Australia, and we welcome the appointment of a woman to this important role.”
