Wow! What a morning! Today was the official launch of The Morning Sky Project, a new Murawin initiative around the empowerment of Aboriginal women, children and young people, educationally and economically. This is an area very close to our heart here at Murawin, and we feel we have the potential to make a real difference in people's lives through our work. We would like to thank Westpac for their support of today's launch at Barangaroo in Sydney, and all who attended and supported us.
Amongst other things, today's launch featured 10 successful and driven Aboriginal businesswomen, who highlight how economic empowerment through business can create positive lives for women and their families. These women included:
- Carol Vale, Murawin
- Debbie Hoger, Riley Callie Resources
- Kate Kelleher, Kate Kelleher Consulting
- Delvene Cockatoo-Collins, Delvene Cockatoo-Collins
- Patricia Torres, Mayi Harvests,
- Nancy Pattison, Indii Hut
- Sharon Winsor, Indigiearth
- Krystal Hurst and Angie Davis, Gillawarra Arts
- Margret Campbell, Dreamtime Southern X
These women will be featuring in our Indigenous version of a Half the Sky Book, and we look forward to learning more about their journeys over the coming months as we develop this book.
The Morning Sky Project also already includes a Tiddas in Business Facebook Group, which is a culturally safe space for women in business to come together and share wisdom, advice, and generally support one another as we network together. This group has over 100 members and growing! Join us!
Over the coming months, we will begin the other elements to The Morning Sky, including various women's projects in a range of different contexts, and supporting educational opportunities for children and young people. Watch this space!
