Overview

On the 18th of August this year, the state government announced that it was working with Aboriginal women from across the state to design what it calls a culturally safe and community led leadership program for future Aboriginal women leaders.

On that same day, the inaugural meeting was held of the Aboriginal Women’s Leadership Advisory Group, attended by eight female Aboriginal leaders, including Dr. Esme Bamblett, Jill Gallagher, Leanne Miller, and a host of others.

Speaking to Connection Matters Radio about the program was project leader Yorta Yorta woman Karen Milward.

“We’re running a series of meetings online… to explore issues that Aboriginal women are facing in leadership roles or what is actually the challenge for Aboriginal women to actually be leaders.

“Then we want to put a really effective, wizbang Aboriginal women’s leadership program together.”

Over the course of October and November, online community consultations will take place across the State.

“We’re hoping that Aboriginal women that we consult with will actually give us the core components to put the Victorian Aboriginal Women’s Leadership Program together,” Karen told CMR.

That’ll be the curriculum. That’ll be identifying key speakers, the types of topics we should be covering. Determining how long the program should be, so whether it be two, three, five days or a series of modules delivered over a year.”
