  • (1888PressRelease) April 20, 2015 - The overwhelming response of the Call for Papers clearly indicates the interests of organizations and individuals to improve Indigenous women's wellbeing throughout this nation and the expectation of increase attendance from last year's event which proved to be highly successful.. More than 50 % of the accepted papers are from community-based organizations, wishing to share successes in programs implemented within their communities which goes with the philosophy of the conference in highlighting successful Indigenous initiatives from a community level. Registration numbers are filling fast; hence, we encourage anyone who wishes to attend the conference to register as soon as possible.

    One of the featured speakers of the conference are Aboriginal youth coordinators, Kathy Edwards and Bianca Mark of SHineSA whom will be presenting about respectful relationships and sexual health in young Aboriginal people living in rural and remote communities. Consequently, Ms. Leanne Pilkington from BreastScreen WA will prove to be one of the highlights of the event with her motivational presentation about women empowerment.

    In addition, this newsletter aims to provide you some insight of the accepted papers for presentation during the 2015 National Indigenous Women's Conference are as follows:
    -Clement Chun Wai Ng, Criminal Lawyer from NT Legal Aid Commission will be presenting a paper entitled: 'Invisible female Indigenous offenders in the youth justice system: What's the problem? An illustration from the Northern Territory perspective.'

    -Patricia Occelli and Mereki, Kutanya Member from Interrelate NSW will be presenting her paper entitled:' A Services Journey to increasing the culturally appropriateness of a mainstream service'

    -Dr Abigail Evans, Obstetrics and Gyneacology Resident at Gold Coast University Hospital QLD will be presenting a paper entitled, 'Determining Barriers to Engagement in the National Cervical Screening Program in a Rural Area of Australia'

    -Louise Roach, Retired Teacher and Assistant Principal, Catholic School's Office Diocese of Maitland, Newcastle will be presenting a paper entitled, "Family, Custom and Spirituality the backbone of our shared experience".

    It is so pleasing to see both government and non-government organizations participating in sharing of information on successful Indigenous women programs existing and being implemented all over Australia and encouraging inter-agency networking either at a local, state and national level.

    We encourage anyone interested in attending the conference to register early. We've structured our registration in such a way that will save organization's money while at the same time providing a great forum for frank and open discussion.
