Deirdre Murphy

As a senior human resources leader with broad global generalist career, across various sectors including IT/ Technology, Engineering & Service industries, I have proven experience in implementing HR strategies to support the key business transformations aligned to the business plans. In the past 16 years at Schneider Electric, I have been very fortunate to have some enriching career opportunities around the globe. Originating from the Sydney/ Australian operations, I have worked and lived around the world with the company. Being based in Dubai, Paris and Boston and now Hong Kong, I have spent the last 9 years living outside of Australia. This experience has enabled me to develop a strong affinity with actively supporting and driving diversity, equity and inclusive work cultures. I am been able to immerse myself in different environments, always with a strong lens for gender diversity. Specifically, I have been able to rebalance both my business and HR leadership teams to role model the benefits of a diverse culture. With a continuous improvement mindset, I look to adopt agile and innovative work practices aligned to the changing nature of work and digital transformations. Together with a focus on well-being and work-life balance.
