She has been a director of CARE since 2004. CARE Australia is an Australian charity and international humanitarian aid organisation fighting global poverty, with a special focus on empowering women and girls to bring lasting change to their communities.
Her work with Jawun Indigenous Corporate Partnerships is so important. Jawun looks to support Indigenous leadership to deliver their own strategies and vision, use corporate and philanthropic involvement to build the capabilities of Indigenous people and organisations, foster Indigenous economic and social development in a way that encourages people to take responsibility for their own lives, focus their efforts ‘in place’ with communities who are ready and willing to engage with them and by building a network where Indigenous, government, corporate and philanthropic ideas can be shared.
