Reflections from Senior Women Academics
Fredericks, Bronwyn & White, Nereda (2011) Reflections from Senior Women Academics. Journal of Australian Indigenous Issues, 14(1), pp. 97-100.
The Tiddas Showin’ Up, Talkin’ Up and Puttin’ Up: Indigenous Women and Educational Leadership project was led by Flinders University in partnership with the Australian Catholic University through the Indigenous Higher Education Centres located in Adelaide (Yunggorendi First Nations Centre) and Brisbane (Weemala Indigenous Unit) (Bunda and White 2009).
At the beginning of the project, two levels of governance were established: a Circle of Senior Indigenous Women from the higher education sector, and a Steering Committee of Senior Executive Women from partner universities.
The Circle of Senior Indigenous Women included experts in the fields of learning and teaching, scholarship, administration and management, and community engagement. The Circle’s members were:
• Professor Wendy Brady, Charles Darwin University
• Dr Jackie Huggins, University of Queensland
• Ms Angela Leitch, Education Queensland
• Professor Aileen Moreton-Robinson, Queensland
University of Technology • Dr Bronwyn Fredericks, Queensland University of Technology and Monash University
The Steering Committee members were: • Professor Gabrielle McMullen, Australian Catholic University • Professor Marie Emmit, Australian Catholic University • Professor Faith Trent, Flinders University • Dr Jane Robbins, Flinders University
The two levels of governance provided advice to the project leaders throughout the project. Three of these women share their reflections in this paper.
