I believe in supporting women we are supporting communities to become sustainable. Lending is respectful because it creates independence and accountability, rather than dependence and vulnerablity.
I have worked in community development in local government for many years. I am now consulting to the not for profit sector and local government in leadership, strategy and governance. I am also a Board member of the Australian Committee of the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM). I am passionate about empowering women to make positive change.
