Megan Gilmour is a social innovator who’s worked on complex social and economic development operations across 24 countries. She catalyses change through dynamic innovation projects, and is a leader in governance and systems, research and advocacy for students missing school because of serious illness.


In 2015, Megan co-authored an Australian-first report on school connection for sick students which received a Prime Minister’s statement of support, and triggered widespread media. She then led action for a corresponding Australian government report, and designed the governance framework that shaped its findings. In 2017, Megan created the Australian-first national telepresence robot initiative connecting students with serious illness to their classrooms.


Megan is a Churchill Fellow, a media spokesperson and TEDx Speaker, and was nominated as a finalist for the ACT Australian of the Year award in 2018.
