About Judy Stewart, Founder

Judy sees Unpaused as a guide for women wanting to restart an interrupted career or mastermind a new one.

It’s a blueprint for women who want to stage their own career comeback and make a difference in their world. A barrister who, after taking time off to raise four sons, discovered professional fulfilment at the helm of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Foundation, Judith Stewart’s career reinvention and renewal was striking and original.

Judith realised that it would be up to her to forge a return to the career she knew she could have, once the boys were on their way. She understood that the sort of job she wanted was not going to find her; she would have to find it.

The different pathways she took, the extraordinary people she met and worked with, the historical figures and contemporary leaders whose resourcefulness and resilience inspired many of Judith’s successes, prompted her to create UnpausedUnpaused is a movement, with a book coming soon and Season 1 of Unpaused the Podcast available now.
