Enabling Women will support people at their individual stages of leadership, and is a Program where participants can:

  • build confidence
  • explore who you are
  • reflect on your strengths (the things you’re good at)
  • learn more about your human rights
  • practise speaking up
  • work with a mentor to achieve a leadership goal
  • connect with other women and non-binary people with disability
  • become a better leader in your community.

We will learn in fun and meaningful ways.

We want as many women and non-binary people (aged 18+) with disability, to be given the opportunity to participate.
