Allegra Spender MP, Federal Member for Wentworth (Australia)
Wentworth covers an area from Elizabeth Bay along the southern shore of Sydney Harbour to Watsons Bay and down the coast to Clovelly
Allegra Spender is the independent Member for Wentworth (Australia). She is a local resident who loves the environment our community is lucky enough to share. Her passion to make sure her kids and future generations continue to enjoy that beauty motivated her to run for parliament on a platform of climate action, political integrity, gender equality and decency. She was elected as part of a wave of so called “Teal” independents who swept into the crossbench in May 2022.
Allegra went to Ascham School Edgecliff, has an Economics degree from Cambridge University and Trinity College, an MSc from the University of London, and has completed business courses at Harvard and Dartmouth College. Before parliament Allegra worked as a business analyst at McKinsey, a policy analyst with UK Treasury and later Managing Director at Carla Zampatti Pty Ltd, her family’s fashion label. Allegra was also the chair of the Sydney Renewable Power Company, and CEO of the Australian Business and Community Network, which addresses educational disadvantage by partnering low socio-economic schools with leading Australian businesses.
As an MP she has taken a leading role with the crossbench in passing a legislated target for reducing Australia’s CO2 emissions, the establishment of the National Anti-Corruption Commission and critical examination of the government’s new Industrial Relations legislation.
She is on the Senate Standing Committee on Economics, The Joint Standing Committee on Migration, and is co-chair of the Parliamentary Friends of Entrepreneurs, Small and Medium Business, Uluru Statement from the Heart and International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA).
She is married with 3 kids.
Allegra Spender is one of the ‘Teal Independents’
