First Nations Women - Emilys List Australia (FN-ELA) Program Survey
Australia would be a better place with more First Nations women in our Parliaments and councils. EMILY’s List Australia (ELA) has supported over 260 women into elected positions since 1996 and is now developing a targeted program – First Nations Women ELA (FNELA)
The FNELA program is being developed by Ashlee Wone, a proud Ngiyampaa, Wiradjuri and Ngemba woman, with support from ELA volunteers, and in consultation with First Nations women who have started on the leadership path or are considering it.
This survey will help us develop a program for encouraging, training, supporting and mentoring First Nations women into elected office in Australia. This survey dives in to find the specific obstacles and barriers First Nations women face and to find suitable support systems to overcome them. With this survey and further consultations, the program will be built and delivered for interested First Nations women.
