SBS is a national public television network in Australia. Launched on 24 October 1980, it is the responsibility of SBS's television division and is available nationally. The company was founded on the belief that all Australians, regardless of geography, age, cultural background or language skills should have access to high quality, independent, culturally-relevant Australian media.
SBS On Demand’s distinctive streaming service is available on more platforms and devices than any other Australian broadcaster’s service, and includes over 6000 hours of programs, with 900 movies of which 70% are in languages other than English.
Melissa has been a champion of equality all of her career and having over 20 year experience in the commercial sector she will no doubt make a huge contribution to SBS in her new role.
Maggie O’Carroll CEO of the Women’s Org said “We offer our warmest congratulations to Melissa in her new role and of course we want to thank her for her continued support in promoting gender equality.
"Melissa has volunteered her valuable time to share her considerable knowledge and expertise with us and thereby helped to support female entrepreneurs within the UK and across the globe. It is through this type of global collaboration that we can learn and make progress toward equality of opportunity. We wish Melissa every success in her new role.”
