Jana Favero

Director - Advocacy and Campaigns, Asylum Seeker Resource Centre

About Me

Jana is Director of Advocacy and Campaigns and has worked for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) for 8 years.
With strong, varied global experience, from communications for the private sector in the UK to women’s social enterprise development in the steppe of Mongolia, to leading a campaign to increase the effectiveness and acceptance of women’s leadership in India.
Jana’s global social justice work sharpened her social justice values and entrenched in her work a basic belief that seeking asylum is a point in someone’s life – not a definition of identity. 
Jana is committed to seeing through advocacy work until people seeking asylum are treated fairly.
Outside of work, Jana is a proud member of the Cloud Appreciation Society and, in leisure time can be found on a flying trapeze or on a bike path with her kids in tow.
