Beverly Hart brings to the Board extensive strategic and policy experience and involvement in governance and accountability arrangements. Beverly's APS career involved senior level engagement with State governments and industry, including the broadcasting, telecommunications, ICT and finance sectors.
Common threads in her career have been extending services to regional, remote and indigenous communities and developing Australia's innovation system, including through the application of ICT across the economy in areas such as science research, health service delivery and digital content development.
Beverly's interest in the arts and theatre go back to her university years when she taught literature after completing a PhD on Shakespeare. In her subsequent APS career, she was able to sustain her interest in the creative arts through her involvement in national and community broadcasting arrangements, copyright issues and the development of the digital content industries. However, she regrets not having a closer engagement in arts policy and practice and sees her involvement with The Street as an opportunity to fill some of this gap while giving back to the community some of the skills she has acquired along the way.
