Professor Eileen Byrne – Education – Stanford Who’s Who Certified

Eileen Byrne: Recognized For Work As A Pioneer Androgynous Manager, Policy Maker, Social Reformer And Academic

ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA, AUSTRALIA, September 2, 2013 /Stanford Who’s Who/ -- Stanford Who’s Who proudly announces the addition of Eileen Byrne to the distinguished ranks of professional individuals as a result of her work in the field of executive management, local and central governmental policy, social reform and higher education. Professor Eileen Byrne is Emeritus Professor of Education (Policy Studies) at the Graduate School of Education of the University of Queensland.  Her appointment to the newly-created Chair at the time brought the female professoriate in Australia to only 3% of the then male-dominated professoriate.

Professor Byrne spent the first two decades of her career in senior/top executive management in local and central government in England.   On her first appointment as Deputy CEO of a local education authority, she was the only woman in Britain then to hold that position.  Her experience of budgeting and resource-allocation includes the handling of budgets of over £50 million sterling at 1970s prices, and negotiations with successive governments for major capital programmes, which she then developed and administered.  She has had over twenty years' experience of the drafting of national legislation for education, training and social welfare.

Professor Byrne has added a London University Ph.D. in Educational Resource Allocation to her first degree in Modern Languages, her doctoral thesis being published as the first in its field only six months later as Planning and Educational Inequality. Her expertise also includes longstanding policy advocacy for equality of education and training for women, on which she has published widely.

Among her many Ministerial appointments to public bodies, Professor Byrne has served for six years as a founding member of the (British) Business Education Council, set up to reorganise the structure of business and commercial education in England, Wales and Northern Ireland; and later as a Federally-appointed member of the Australian National Commission for UNESCO. As one of a small team of experts who set up the British Equal Opportunities Commission of which she was the first Education Officer, Professor Byrne then moved on as fulltime education consultant to the EEC and UNESCO, where her published international reports have influenced new policies for improved education and training of women.

Professor Eileen Byrne has a long experience of negotiation with governments on policy change and budgeting, also dealing with entrenched governmental and other power structures on behalf of vulnerable social groups with no public voice.  She is a committed mentor, an experienced public speaker, and an expert trainer.  Her training sessions in Empowerment, Advocacy and Lobbying have been seen as both innovative and effective.

Professor Byrne is currently working on two new research-based books. Following the example of Dame Margery Corbett Ashby, she does not propose actually to retire until she is 94.
