Our staff member Christine has been awarded a scholarship to attend the Indigenous Women’s Leadership Summit held in Brisbane this week.
Christine is a counsellor with our Royal Commission Support Services where she works to support clients who have been affected by institutional sexual abuse. Christine is an Indigenous woman of Kayteye and Aranda descent, and prior to her work with Relationships Australia SA she held a number of leadership roles with agencies such as the Northern Territory Welfare Department, the Aboriginal Child Care Agency, the Central Australian Aboriginal Congress and the Central Australian Aboriginal Alcohol Program Unit. Christine was one of two finalists for this scholarship.
The Indigenous Women’s Leadership Summit is an uplifting and inspirational leadership development opportunity designed for emerging and established leaders across all sectors within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
The Summit offers an exceptional speaker line up, sharing their experiences and insights in order to address the challenges and obstacles faced by women wishing to progress their leadership careers. It will also showcase strategies on how these challenges can be overcome, and the methods that women can implement in order to ensure that their career duties and goals are aligned with cultural and community obligations.
