From the CEO
I am delighted to bring you the news of the last quarter.
As indicated in the stories below, many of our initiatives are well underway and we are starting to see the impact on the ground of the Foundation’s commitment to incubation and deep collaboration.
A highlight of the last quarter was joining the Indigenous Women’s Business Camp at Yiramalay College, Bunuba Country, located near the spectacular Leopold Ranges. Following on from the success of the inaugural camp in Hall Creek in August 2020, over 40 Aboriginal women gathered to discuss leadership, entrepreneurship, and business development.
Led by the indominable and inspiring Natasha Short, CEO Kimberley Jiyigas, these women have a vision for the future which is deeply inspiring – their aspiration to build a circular economy to lift their people, founded on a strong commitment to family, community and the earth is a vision to which we all should ascribe.
The stories these women shared around the campfire each night highlight the challenges of deep reflection, of openness to building skills and capabilities and the importance of a focus on the contribution we can each make to a flourishing life.
As always, we welcome your connection and commitment and encourage you to join us in raising the profile and importance of ‘outstanding’ leadership.
