Western Bulldogs Community Foundation | Members Statement

Ms VAGHELA: On another note, I had the privilege to attend a virtual event organised by the Western Bulldogs Community Foundation. Facilitated in partnership with local councils and community health services across western Victoria, Daughters of the West is their free eight-week online health program. This program has been successfully running for three years, and last year a total of 514 women participated in the program. I was joined by Gaye Hamilton, the chair of the Western Bulldogs Community Foundation, to take part in their ‘Inspirational women’ session, where we both shared our life journeys with the participants. The aim of the session was to tell the real-life journey of inspirational women doing amazing things in public or behind closed doors. It ties into the strategic priority of the foundation, gender equity, in showing women as influential leaders.
