About the speakers

Zaneta Mascarenhas MP

Zaneta is the Member for Swan in the Parliament of Australia. She was born in Kalgoorlie and grew up in Kambalda – a nickel mining town where her father was a fitter and mum was the lolly pop lady. Prior to her election, she managed the Western Australia team for Energetics, Australia’s leading carbon and energy consultancy. At Energetics she provided energy efficiency and climate change advice to WA Resource companies. She has also worked in mining, construction and commissioning. Zaneta has degrees in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from Curtin University. Zaneta has a strong track record in not-for-profit governance, having served six different boards including education institutions and a legal centre.

As the first engineer elected as the Member for Swan and the 28th in the Parliament of Australia, Zaneta intends to apply her problem solving skills to address the key policy questions facing the Federal Government, such as the transition to a low carbon economy and developing Australia’s high tech manufacturing capacity.
