Amanda Whitley, Editor-In-Chief HerCanberra
Amanda is attending Country to Canberra’s 2015 Powerful Women’s Breakfast, where she will discuss leadership with the rural teenage winners of our 2015 essay competition.
Since Amanda Whitley graduated from the University of Canberra in 1994 she’s worked in all facets of public relations and media, in both the private and public sectors.
In 2011 Amanda launched www.hercanberra.com.au, a website for local women which today reaches an audience of around 90 000 readers each month. The website provides a resource which tells the city’s stories, highlights things to do, facilitates friendships through a series of ‘offline’ events, and encourages people to engage with their city as a great place to live. She now employs a team of four, dedicated to running the HerCanberra website and producing its new quarterly publication, ‘Magazine’.
