Indigenous Women’s Entrepreneurship

Indigenous issues continue to be one of the key leadership challenges for Australia.

In addition, there is growing international acknowledgement of the importance of building platforms focused on women’s economic empowerment to support these women to help themselves, support their families and communities, connect to markets and access financial services.

The Maganda Makers Business Club has been developed through a collaboration between Kimberley Birds, Good Return and Menzies Foundation. ’Maganda Makers’ is a new initiative working with Indigenous women in the Kimberley to support economic development, financial literacy and entrepreneurship. Maganda is a Jaru word meaning ‘Tomorrow’.

The Foundation is delighted to announce the appointment of Maree Cutler-Naroba to Project Coordinator for Kimberley Jiyigas Projects and Program Manager for Maganda Makers.

As an additional support and to compliment the initiative the Foundation is delighted to have accepted an invitation to join Swinburne University as an industry partner to support Cindy Mitchell, to undertake a PhD focused on women’s empowerment, entrepreneurship, and indigenous leadership. Recently, Liz Gillies sat down with Cindy and explored leadership from her perspective – Listen now!
