Our People

We are all partners in mission. Like the Good Shepherd Sisters, we work side by side with people in the community wherever services are needed and wherever there are opportunities for positive change.

In keeping with our heritage and core values, we work in a trusted relationship with the Good Shepherd Sisters in pursuit of a better world, with a focus on women and girls.

Stella Avramopoulos

As the leader of Good Shepherd, she is committed to disrupting cycles of disadvantage that hinder the wellbeing of women, girls and families.  

Stella’s stewardship has imbued the organisation with a reinvigorated focus that merges its globally renowned 400-year-old legacy with a contemporary professional approach; blends the principles of governance and accountability with excellent program performance; and creates an ecosystem of robust and meaningful partnerships with government, collaborating agencies, business and the broader community sector that brings the power of connection and shared innovation to the individuals and communities she serves.
