Nb: We will be kicking this event off a little earlier than usual so Lisa can be on the ABC News Breakfast couch bright and early! Doors open at 5.30pm for a 6pm start.

Lisa Millar, award-winning journalist and current co-host of ABC News Breakfast, will join moderator Matilda Marozzi for the first Edit event of 2020. We will be discussing her career to date and the importance of journalists maintaining positive mental health practices.

Millar started her life in journalism as a cadet at the Gympie Times in 1988. Since then she has worked in print, TV and radio. She won a 2005 Walkley Award for her series investigating the wrongful deportation of Australian woman Vivian Solon, and her career has taken her to the US and Europe as a correspondent and bureau chief.

Named an Ochberg Fellow of the Dart Centre for Journalism and Trauma in 2007, Millar served on the organisation's board until December 2019.

Ticket cost includes drink and snacks.
