Tricia Malowney on WWDA’s LEAD Program
Today is International Women’s Day and this year’s theme is Choose to Challenge and the UN theme is ‘Women in Leadership: Achieving an Equal Future in a COVID-19 World’. The theme highlights how the pandemic has impacted and continues to impact women and girls profoundly and the way it amplifies existing inequalities.
So. What does leadership mean to you?
The Women With Disabilities Australia organisation asked their members this very question and a resounding 82% said: “to help others to have their voices heard”.
We spoke with Tricia Malowney, President of Women with Disabilities Australia (WWDA) about the Women with Disabilities Australia new project LEAD- lead, engage, activate and drive. The project -funded by the NDIS- aims to develop and build leadership skills of women, girls, feminine identifying and non-binary people with disabilities, both individually and collectively.
