Indigenous women's mentoring

Past project

This grant under the UNSW Equity Initiative is to commence an Indigenous Women Researcher Mentor Program, aimed at the needs of Indigenous women who are or wish to become academics. The Mentor Program provides an opportunity for Indigenous women to further develop first, their research skills in social policy and related areas; or second, academic and social policy research careers. Additionally, the Mentor Program enables SPRC, a key contributor to social policy research in Australia, to develop our Indigenous research capacity. The Mentor Program seeks to address not only the issues identified by the UNSW Equity Plan but also wider concern about the lack of research training and opportunities for Indigenous women researchers.
