Katie Page

Katie Page, Managing Director of Harvey Norman and a Western Sydney Foundation Council member, firmly believes in the life-changing impact of education. In 2015 Ms Page championed the Harvey Norman Scholarships at Western Sydney University, where $300,000 was donated to support 13 students for the whole of their course.

Having seen the effect that scholarships can have on students in supporting them to realise their goals and further their potential, Ms Page is committed to supporting more Western Sydney University students through scholarships.

Ms Page is passionate about helping women achieve great things. These scholarships support high-achieving women, women who have overcome disadvantage, and refugee women. Ms Page is proud to support the hard work of students and Western Sydney University. She says, ‘the University is doing great things and I want to support these scholarships because I truly believe in this.’
