WHO RUN THE WORLD? GIRLS!
This International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating remarkable women! We put the call out to find out more about the inspiring and talented women in our community – our mums, teachers, bosses, friends and more.
We've profiled 5 women, as nominated by you! They'll each also receive a Highpoint prize pack valued at $500.
Tracey is a community leader, dedicating over 30 years of work to making a difference in the Aboriginal community. She’s worked across child protection, the justice system, and the health sector, as well as providing support for families in need. Tracey says she finds her job incredibly rewarding, and knew that this was the right career for her because of how it made her feel. She enjoys being a leader (and a mum!), and is passionate about better outcomes for her community.
