Cathy Ngo is a social entrepreneur, keynote speaker, and writer based in Sydney. She’s known for pushing the boundaries and agenda for diversity, equity, and inclusion. Cathy’s continued advocacy work and thought leadership is featured across many publications, including the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, ABC, SBS, Women’s Agenda, and on radio.
Cathy has a five-year-old son. When he was born, she struggled with deep perinatal depression and anxiety which lasted for almost three years. She didn’t find many resources at the time on the intersection of cultural heritage and PND. The demands of meeting both her Asian roots and navigating parenthood were overwhelming. Determined to help other culturally diverse families, Cathy is passionate about supporting programs that break down the stigma and barriers in reaching out for help and support.
Outside of work, Cathy enjoys reading non-fiction, painting abstract art, and spoiling her two dogs (oh, and her son too).
