Jilinda Lee

Proud and passionate feminist, author, speaker and outspoken change champion

Jilinda Lee is a change champion, internationally recognised leadership expert, inspirational thought leader, dynamic speaker, writer, mentor and passionate influencer on all things leadership related.

As a proud feminist and global advocate for women’s participation in raising the leadership bar, Jilinda’s high energy sweet spot is fuelled and fired up when combining her two great passions:


Known for her vibrant, passionate personality, and straight-shooting commentary, Jilinda Lee is not afraid to challenge the status quo. She doesn’t try to blend in with the ordinary, is not inspired by the average, nor does she believe in playing small to suit others.

Instead, she purposefully rocks individuality, espouses authenticity, and dares to disrupt for greater-good outcomes.

When presenting, Jilinda delivers lively on-point talks, using meaningful personal stories, designed to inspire and ignite her audience to be the change; to be the leaders the world so desperately needs.

In 2019, she published her first book – Rock Your Stripes, to inspire more women to step up into leadership; in their lives and for the greater good of our society.

Having recently been appointed as Regional Leader for Lean In Queensland, by the Lean In global movement, Jilinda and her partner have launched an expanded state-wide collective to increase the number of Lean In Circles, and provide support for facilitators.

Jilinda readily adapts her inspirational talks to suit themes, and the IWD theme on equality is one of her favourite signature topics.
