Rachel

2018 Professional Alumnus of the Year

Awarded the Prime Minister’s Veteran Employee of the Year for 2018, Rachel Ranton continues to use her military skills of leadership and enthusiasm to learn and lead change as an Inclusion and Diversity Consultant with Westpac Group.  

USQ provided Rachel with the opportunity to explore the broader world of business through the Graduate Certificate of Business and then Master of Business Administration (MBA)

'The thing that was really attractive to me about USQ was that they have such a great reputation for online learning as I was going to be working full-time as well as studying'. 

In addition, Rachel’s involvement in the Veterans Hiring Initiative, Inclusive Leadership Training (ILEAD) and Women of Influence Awards has not gone unrecognised. 

Last year, Rachel presented a TED Talk discussing the importance of group dynamics and leadership through which she applied both her corporate and military experience.
