In 2012 the Harvard Club of Australia established the Sir James Wolfensohn Public Service Scholarship to enable senior Australian public servants to undertake an executive education program at the Harvard Kennedy School, the world’s leading school of Government.  The Scholarship is intended to support the design and delivery of good public policy in Australia and we are privileged to welcome Katarina to share her story, her challenges and insights.
