Your Officers

Women’s Officers

The Women’s Officers are the official representatives of the Department and are available to provide support, referrals and advocacy within the ANU and wider community. Siang Jin Law is the Women’s Officer in 2020. She will represent your interests at ANU and ANUSA meetings, provide support and referrals to professional services you may need, and facilitate events and campaigns throughout the year.

Siang Jin Law (she/her/hers)

Hi everyone, my name is Jin and I’m about to go into my fourth year of a Law/PPE double degree, and I’m an international student from Brunei (but would definitely call Canberra my second home). In my spare time I enjoy hunting for dogs to pat around Canberra and reading, be it trashy YA or nonfiction books about race. The Women’s Department has given me some of the most fun and rewarding experiences, and I honestly cannot wait for the new year ahead. I am looking forward to representing you and your interests, as well as fighting for a safer campus for all. If you have any queries, concerns, ideas or just want to have a chat, email me at sa.womens@anu.edu.au and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Deputy Women’s Officers

The Deputy Women’s Officers provide support to the Women’s Officer and advocate for the members of the Department. Miriam Wicks-Wilson and Queenie Ung-Lam are the Deputies in 2020. They will take leadership and responsibility of the development and running of the Collective (the active members of the Department). You can contact them at anu.womens.dept@gmail.com.

Queenie Ung-Lam (she/her/hers)

My name is Queenie and I’m incredibly excited to be one of the two deputy officers for 2020. I’m currently in my third year of PPE – loving the politics and philosophy while struggling through the economics. I joined the Women’s Department as Treasurer in 2019 and have felt so inspired and supported by the beautiful individuals in this community. The people identifying as women that I’ve met throughout my university experience have emboldened the passion that I feel for creating spaces where we can feel safe to learn, grow and speak our minds. As deputy this year, my primary focus is on fostering this sense of belonging and freedom within our collective through our events, campaigns, online spaces and my personal one-on-one interactions. I’m looking forward to meeting you all in person and cannot wait to see this department flourish with your contributions.

Miriam Wicks-Wilson (she/her/hers)

My name is Miriam (she/ her) and I’m one of your deputies for 2020! I’m from Canberra and am currently in my final year of a Bachelor of Arts with a major in French Culture and Language, and a minor in Gender Studies. When I’m not doing Women’s Department stuff, you’ll find me listening to podcasts, playing video games, or hanging out with my dog Percy. If you see me around, come up and have a chat, I can’t wait to meet you all!
