Lauren Henley

Lauren was launched into the world of disability after losing her sight in a car accident in 2006. Since this time she has gone on to hold several roles in the disability sector, including National Policy Officer for Blind Citizens Australia and Advisor to the Disability Discrimination Commissioner at the Australian Human Rights Commission. In 2014, Lauren was selected to represent Australia at the Conference of States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities at the United Nations. She is currently working in the role of Education and Training Coordinator at the Australian Human Rights Commission where she designs and delivers training on a range of human rights issues, but continues to take a keen interest in matters relating to disability.
