Roseanne Cartwright


Roseanne is known for her unique combination of deep HR, OD and Communications expertise. She brings a pragmatic, human-centred approach to her work, specialising in leadership, diversity, talent and culture change. 

In a corporate career spanning roles and sectors in Australia, Africa and Asia, Roseanne has long been an advocate for diversity. She led Communications and HR functions at Qantas, John Holland Group, CIMIC and Laing O’Rourke, helping them achieve real performance improvements by designing and delivering industry leading parental leave and flexible work strategy, policies, programs, training and ways of working. 

This paved the way for her current role as Business Director at mwah. Making Work Absolutely Human.

A committed supporter of Indigenous adults and young women, Roseanne is mentor at Tranby National Indigenous Adult Education & Training; Young Professional Women Australia; and Aboriginal Employment Strategy. She has a Bachelor of Design from the University of Technology, Sydney and is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. 

Roseanne absolutely believes that flexible working simply ‘makes sense’ as a way for individuals and organisations to build healthier and more inclusive ways of working that are good for people and good for society. Society is changing and people are looking for ways to work that are different from the traditional work structures. Flexism is a way for more people from all walks of life opportunity to be included in the workplace; for more people to turn up ‘well’ and ready to thrive at work because they have choice in the way they live their life; and for businesses to benefit from society’s fuller and broader participation in work.
