GUEST SPEAKER - STEVE BAIRD
Steve Baird has recently taken a pivot in his professional life. He spent 17 years in senior executive roles at airlines, and when the Pandemic hit, and he thought how else could I be making a difference? He had a heart for the underdog in his airline career, handing out airline blankets to the homeless in Sydney and regional NSW, so wanted to pursue care for the vulnerable in a more substantial way.
In August 2020, Steve joined the fast-growing International Justice Mission Australia as CEO. IJM is the largest anti-slavery organisation in the world and is seeking to protect 500 million people in poverty from violence in 23 countries by 2030, including the horrific Online Sexual Exploitation of Children. Steve has a vision to put the issue of modern-day slavery into the psyche of all Australians and the church. Steve first became aware of IJM 15 years ago through his wife Annemaree, a lawyer who spent time in Washington D.C. The work of the organisation seeking justice for the most vulnerable captured both their hearts.
Steve’s pedigree too, is without reproach. His father, Bruce Baird AM, was a former deputy leader of the NSW Liberal party, his brother, Mike Baird, is the former Premier of NSW, and his sister is ABC journalist and writer, Julia Baird. But he says it was his mum who is his biggest influence.
Steve and Annemaree live in the Blue Mountains, outside Sydney with their three young boys, where their love of cricket, community and church take centre stage.
