Description

Being born and bred in Wyndham, I have had the privilege to see Wyndham in its prime - the meat works in was in operations, the town booming with events and activities for all, individuals, families and community members participated and engaged. I felt safe and a part of a broader community. When I was 17 years old, my first official job was with the Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley, and the past 30 years I have had the privilege of working in various positions within the NGO, Govt & ENGO sectors, and sat on many boards and committees. During these times I found myself constantly being challenged and reminded of the lack of cultural competency the service providers and organization have working with Aboriginal people. If we are serious about closing the gap’, we need to be more culturally capable and competent as individuals and as service providers and organizations. This is where my passion is and this is what I choose to challenge.
