For 2024 Ashurt Law Top100 Future Leader Award Finalist, Emily Calbert, studying her Bachelor of Psychology (Honours)/Law at UNSW is “so much more than learning from leading academics. Since day one of my degree, UNSW has equipped me with the practical skills to tackle real-world problems in my future career. There is no linear definition of success, and the supportive culture at UNSW has inspired me to pursue what I am passionate about. I am truly grateful for the staff and peers who have been some of my greatest motivators, encouraging me to step outside of my comfort zone, and ultimately hope to inspire others to challenge themselves to reach their full potential throughout my career."

“As most migrants in Australia, finding a career that is directly related to my professional qualification was not easy. I had no local experience which is what most companies are looking for. I have a bachelor's degree in Psychology and [a] Master of Science in Industrial Psychology, and an extensive experience in HR in the financial services industry. I was keen to pivot my career into Strategy and Transformation and doing a postgraduate study in AGSM Change Management was my springboard to do so."

"Projects at UNSW provided invaluable direction for me to pursue my interest and fostered my passion for sustainability that now permeates my personal and professional life. My university projects equipped me with the tools to translate this passion into action, and I developed and elevated both of my technical knowledge and employability skills such as leadership. 

Today, I'm a Research and Development (R&D) intern at a multinational company, actively contributing to developing sustainable ideas and solutions. This opportunity wouldn't exist without the unique combination of technical knowledge and leadership skills gained through UNSW. They not only scratched that initial itch but equipped me to actively shape a more sustainable future."
