The Hon. Natalie Ward MLC, Minister for Metropolitan Roads, and Minister for Women's Safety and the Prevention of Domestic and Sexual Violence
The Hon. Natalie Ward MLC is the Minister for Metropolitan Roads and Minister for Women’s Safety and the Prevention of Domestic and Sexual Violence in the Perrottet Government, appointed in December 2021.
Prior to this appointment, Minister Ward was Minster for Sport, Multiculturalism, Seniors and Veterans in the Berejiklian Government. She joined the Legislative Council of NSW Parliament in November 2017 and was re-elected at the March 2019 state election.
In 2019, Natalie Chaired the Joint Select Committee on Sydney’s Night Time Economy, which ultimately led to the development of the NSW Government’s 24-hour Economy Strategy. Natalie Chaired the Joint Select Committee on Coercive Control in 2020. In an Australian-first, the committee unanimously recommended that coercive control be criminalised along with 23 recommendations relating to domestic abuse in 2021. The experience of chairing the Coercive Control Inquiry provided a unique opportunity to engage with a wide range of stakeholders, which she brings to her role as Minister for Women’s Safety and the Prevention of Domestic and Sexual Violence.
Prior to entering Parliament, Natalie practised law, specialising in commercial litigation, for over twenty years, as well as working in Financial Services and Government. She graduated from The University of Adelaide with Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts (Jurisprudence) in 1996.
