RISE Project update: Building pathways to leadership for CARM women

March 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEDT

Rise Project Artwork
RISE is a visionary project that aims to build pathways to leadership for women from culturally and racially marginalised (CARM) backgrounds. The RISE project (Realise. Inspire. Support. Energise.) is designed to help break down systemic barriers for CARM women in middle management. 
Project partners DCA, Settlement Services International (SSI) and Chief Executive Women (CEW) are working with a group of employers to implement organisational change interventions that will help address these systemic barriers for CARM women. At this event, you will hear an update on the Project’s progress and find out more about the intake for Phase 2. 
Emceed by DCA’s Dr Virginia Mapedzahama (she/her), Director Member Education, speaks to our invited guest speakers to discuss: 
  • A recap of the RISE Project and its objectives
  • An update on project progress
  • Common themes that have arisen through the ASSESS to RISE tool,
  • Information on how organisations can apply for the final Phase (Phase 2) of the RISE Project, 
  • A chance to ask questions about the project. 
Our guest speakers will include: 
  • Juliana Nkrumah AM (she/her), Domestic and Family Violence Project Manager, SSI  
  • Sarah Rowley (she/her), Director, Leadership Development, CEW
  • Sheetal Deo (she/her), Senior Project Manager, RISE Project, DCA.
