Cofounders of PROJECT ROCKIT, Lucy and Rosie Thomas have dedicated their lives to making the world better for young people. The pair launched PROJECT ROCKIT when they were fresh out of school and restless for change on issues of bullying, hate and prejudice. Over a decade later, PROJECT ROCKIT is a thriving social enterprise, reaching hundreds of thousands of students and serving as a cyber safety partner to major social media platforms. Rosie and Lucy regularly appear in the media and have received numerous awards honouring their work.
Although three years apart, the Thomas sisters hold a shared vision that has translated into a strong social impact. They have both received Order of Australia medals, been named by UNICEF among 12 Digital Champions for Children’s Rights in the Digital Age and are recipients of the global Family Online Safety Institute’s award for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Online Safety.’ Together the duo sit on a range of boards including Facebook’s Global Safety Board, Twitter’s Global Trust and Safety Council and the Australian Office of the eSafety Commissioner’s Online Safety Consultative Working Group.
“The definition of passion? These sisters from PROJECT ROCKIT”
“Rosie and Lucy delivered a keynote at Rare Birds Conference before 400 women entrepreneurs and their supporters. There is no question that Rosie and Lucy know how to engage, affect and drive an audience to act positively. They are funny, knowledgeable and above all else relative on the most human level. I know we will have Rosie and Lucy back to talk again for Rare Birds, they are wonderful purpose driven activists with the business smarts to go with it.”
“Rosie and Lucy Thomas are the perfect blend of youthful enthusiasm and a mature understanding of complex social, behavioural and technology issues. They commit to projects 100%, are dedicated in their preparation and deliver on the day, when they own the room and win the audience over – students, teachers, parents, government officials and ministers alike.”
