Yasmin Poole seeks to challenge policymakers to think differently. Her vision is for Australia to become a global leader in intersectional policymaking, with a Parliament that truly reflects the diversity of our communities.
Yasmin is Plan International’s National Ambassador, advocating for young women to be heard in Australian politics. She regularly provides commentary on Australian TV and radio, such as Q+A, The Drum, and ABC News. Yasmin is the Non-Executive Board Director of OzHarvest, Australia’s leading food waste charity, and works on communications campaigns for the World Bank in the Pacific region.
In 2021, Yasmin was recognised as the Martin Luther King Jr Center’s Youth Influencer of the Year, and was named as one of the Australian Financial Review’s 100 Women of Influence and 40 Under 40 Asian Australians.
She was recently awarded the Rhodes Scholarship and is currently studying intersectional policymaking at the University of Oxford, where she was elected Chair of Council at the Oxford University Student Union.
