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.
We will work with our valued members to create meaningful connections so that women and girls with disabilities have the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to set and achieve their goals and actively contribute to leading and influencing their community. We will also work to strengthen and build our internal capacity through organisational capacity building.
The project will consist of many components over the two years but could include events, webinars, opportunities to showcase creative talents, leadership scholarships, and ongoing mechanisms to amplify our voices.
