Michelle Guthrie (born 1965) is an Australian business executive and lawyer. Guthrie was born in Sydney in 1965, and studied arts and law at the University of Sydney. She joined the law firm Allen, Allen & Hemsley as a media and technology lawyer in Sydney and Singapore, then moved to London as a corporate counsel for News International.
She stated "Australia is changing and we need to change with it. Shaped by my background and work experience, I passionately believe that the ABC should be relevant to all citizens. We must extend our reach and our relevance into areas where we are under-represented. That means more diversity in both our staff and our content."
Quote from the article "Michelle Guthrie has vowed to use her position as the ABC's first female managing director to create a more diverse public broadcaster, with greater representation of women and multicultural communities."
