Time for a good news story….we are delighted to share the news that Vicki has been selected as a winner of the 100 Women of Influence in the “Social enterprise/Not for Profit” category. This is a national award program now in its 3rd year, run by Westpac and the Financial Review. The overall winner will be announced in Sydney on October 22nd. RecVic nominated her. It is wonderful recognition of not only Vicki’s tireless and innovative work both within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and with the wider community, but also acknowledges her valuable contribution to national reconciliation building and nationhood. It is exciting and celebratory news. We are delighted and honoured to have her as the Co-Chair of our organisation; a position to which she devotes a great deal of her time and energy and brings much wisdom and meaning.
