Worldwide Women Public Sector Leaders Network
Our global womens network leader
Uschi Schreiber is the leader of Ernst & Young's Global Government & Public Sector Center.
Uschi is no stranger to leadership herself. She has had a distinguished career in the public, private and non-government sectors. She is a former Director-General, Deputy Director-General and Cabinet Secretary of delivery and central agency Government departments.
Uschi is passionate about the women's agenda - about the contribution women make and the value women bring to complex decision making environments. She is familiar from personal experience with the challenges encountered by women in leadership roles in both the public sector and business. She is also an active contributor to Ernst & Young's Diversity & Inclusiveness programs and was the inaugural chair of the Oceania Diversity and Inclusiveness Council of Ernst and Young.
She firmly believes that women make a real difference when they are in leadership - and in support of this - initiated and championed the Ernst & Young Worldwide Women Public Sector Leaders Network in late 2012.
Uschi leads Ernst & Young's growing Government and Public Sector practice of more than 7,000 people across mature and emerging markets providing advisory, audit, transactional and taxation services to clients in many countries.
The shift from West to East that is dominating the global economic landscape is not new to Uschi. Originally from Germany, she has lived in Australia and Asia for many years and is now based in Hong Kong.
