In 2020 WWDA received funding from the National Disability Insurance Scheme’s Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) Program to deliver a new project called WWDA LEAD – Lead, Engage, Activate and Drive.

For two years the WWDA team will focus on promoting and advancing the leadership, agency, autonomy, human rights and freedoms of women, girls, feminine identifying and non-binary people with disabilities, both individually and collectively.

One of the key deliverables of the WWDA LEAD project is the development of a WWDA Leadership and Mentoring Toolkit.

To ensure that the Toolkit design and development is led by women and girls with disability, a Co-Design Committee being formed. 

The Co-Design Committee will be comprised of a diverse group of women with disability with expertise across a range of different areas. Committee members will be called on as required to provide expert advice on the content, design, accessibility and promotion of the Toolkit.

Committee consultations will occur between November 2021 and June 2022 and all committee members will be paid for their contributions.
