About Julia McKenna
As one of the founding Directors and the Chief Financial Officer of Friends With Dignity, her career has seen her working in Sydney, London and Singapore in the International Investment Banking Sector.
However, whilst living in Singapore, one of her family members, Allison Baden–Clay, was murdered by her husband. Upon her return to Australia, she knew this was where she needed to focus her time and energies.
Friends With Dignity was established in September 2015 to assist men, women and children who have faced the devastating effects of domestic violence. Since its establishment Friends With Dignity has assisted over 2000 victims through their Sanctuary Program, Urgent Requests and Little Friends Scholarships. In 2018, Friends With Dignity was awarded the Australian Charity of the Year and Ms Rosie Batty is its National Ambassador.
Julia’s focus is now on expanding Friends With Dignity nationwide and ensuring the conversation around domestic violence continues.
