Han Worsley

Educator, Gender Equality Advocate and Keynote Speaker

Han Worsley is a passionate educator, advocate, and proud non-binary person. Han has extensive experience in motivational and educational speaking, workshop and event facilitation, seminar delivery for access and inclusion, and executive development in the gender diversity and LGBTIQA+ space.

At just 22 years old, Han became the CEO of Country to Canberra, a not-for-profit empowering young rural women and non-binary people to reach their leadership potential. Traveling to Australia’s furthest corners in this role, while juggling work as a rural primary school teacher, compounded the values learnt growing up on the family farm north of Nullamanna NSW, population 40. Han’s work today is on the ground in rural NSW, supporting rural student inclusion strategies for the university system.

Han has been proudly sharing their combined passions of rural access, gender equity, and LGBTIQA+ inclusion for almost a decade, and was invited to deliver a TEDx Talk in 2022 on growing up non-binary in country Australia. They sit on the board of agricultural charity Women Together Learning, and run the Alumni Board Development Program for The Pinnacle Foundation, Australia’s LGBTIQA+ education charity. They have been recognised for their work as ABC Canberra’s Community Champion Under 40 and in Out For Australia’s 30 under 30 Awards.

They have appeared on ABC TV News and Radio Drive, and a variety of podcasts, as well as presenting their work on rural access to higher education at conferences across Australia.
