Mayee Warren

Mayee is a resident of the beautiful Gloucester Valley. Until 2014, Mayee was a global justice professional having served in senior positions in judicial institutions tasked with investigating, prosecuting and adjudicating cases of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. For over 12 years she served in the Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court based in The Hague, The Netherlands; the Special Court for Sierra Leone in Freetown and in The Hague; the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in Arusha, Tanzania and Kigali, Rwanda.

Mayee is a believer in what she calls the “human rights dividend” – the “profit share” that comes in the form of a just and sustainable world, enjoyed by members of communities that continuously invest in promoting human rights through education and community engagement.

Inspired by the spirited dedication of grassroots campaigners to establish Australia’s Modern Slavery Act, she convened “Hidden No More – #endslavery” as a “pop-up” advocacy support group to provide multidisciplinary ad hoc assistance to bold and ambitious anti-slavery projects. They have so far been able to stage community awareness events in Queensland during the Commonwealth Games in April 2018 focussing on the presence of modern slavery in mega-sporting events. They are currently supporting the laudable efforts of the Anti-Slavery Task Force of the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney, amongst others.

Outside her probono activities, Mayee is a part-time lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney, runs an e-learning production consultancy for professional and higher education organisations and is currently pursuing a Masters degree in International Law.
