Townsville Networking Breakfast – Postponed

Thursday, 12 March 2020

All Townsville-based scholars are invited to attend a Learning & Networking breakfast at James Cook University.

Come along and join the conversation with our guest speaker, Anne Taylor, the former Regional Implementation Manager of the First 1000 Days Townsville initiative.

Anne has a broad range of experience in child protection and family reforms, community development, project management, procurement and contract management in the North Queensland region such as Burdekin, Palm Island, Charters Towers/Hughenden, Ingham and Townsville.

Anne will join us at the Pacific Networking Breakfast to share her insights and experiences from the First 1000 Days Townsville initiative. The initiative worked with indigenous elders, researchers, community members, front-line workers, policy makers and early childhood program developers in the Townsville area to provide coordinated, comprehensive, culturally informed interventions to support families in identifying and meeting their own aspirations and those they have for their children.

You also will have the opportunity to meet members of the Women’s Leadership Initiative team, current participants and Australia Awards scholars during a morning of lively discussions and networking.

For the Australia Awards Pacific women scholars, you will be able to find out more about how to apply for the Women’s Leadership Initiative 2020 Leadership & Mentoring program (applications open in September).
