Virginia (Ginni) Hall had a long career spanning nursing, youth work, social work and social work education. In a voluntary/community service capacity, Ginni has been involved in community health, legal aid, women’s services, family and children’s services, youth services, aged care, electoral reform, community housing, Indigenous issues, international development and justice, and environmental initiatives. She is known for her independence and courage, her energy, dedication and resilience, and her resourcefulness, humanity and humility. While her award of an Order of Australia Medal in 2014 shows the esteem she is held in by her colleagues and the broader community, Ginni remains down-to-earth, with a keen sense of humour, and in conversation describes herself as a bit of a “ratbag”.
