Stephanie Lorenzo didn’t begin her career planning to start a charity. It was a chance encounter with a book about sex trafficking when she was 22 followed by a life-changing trip to Cambodia that left her asking ”how could this be real”?
In 2009 combining a passionate vision, with a purpose-driven action plan, Stephanie founded Project Futures, an Australian not-for profit organization that works with local and international groups in the Asia-Pacific region to end human trafficking and slavery. Project Futures creates meaningful experiences to raise funds, educate and empower her generation of millenials.
Stephanie holds a Bachelor of International Communication from Macquarie University. In 2016, she was a finalist in the Qantas and Women’s Weekly ‘Women of the Future Award’, in 2014 named one of the Financial Review and Westpac’s 100 Women of Influence, in 2013 was nominated as Australian of the Year. Most recently, Stephanie has joined the Emerging Leaders Advisory Board for the Australian Institute of Management (AIM).
