Guest speaker is Robyn Westgate. Robyn has post-graduate qualifications in Criminology, Justice, and Tertiary and Adult Education. All these qualifications were gained while Robyn was serving a life sentence of imprisonment in maximum security prison. During her imprisonment, Robyn became determined to work towards improving the plight of female prisoners within the system.
Recognising the strong links between violence, poverty, disrupted education and low literacy, homelessness, mental health, alcohol and substance abuse, sexual assault, and regular risk of imprisonment Robyn set about studying areas that would enable her to work towards being an advocate for women within the criminal justice system.
