At the Tasmanian Young Achiever Awards tonight, WWDA Policy and Projects Officer, Heidi La Paglia, took out the TADPAC Print Service to the Disability Sector Award. We are so proud of Heidi and her achievements.

Heidi is an advocate for young women with disabilities, like herself. Heidi undertook leadership roles for the Tasmania University Union and National Union of Students where she assisted women with disabilities with their welfare and participation. She worked to assist individuals in accessing the National Disability Insurance Scheme in her roles working with the Australian Labor Party.

As the Content Officer for Women With Disabilities Australia’s virtual centre project, Heidi worked extensively with individuals with disabilities across Australia to develop content for their website Our Site which was launched earlier this year.
