For more than 30 years, the National Foundation for Australian Women (NFAW) has been dedicated to promoting and protecting the interests of Australian women, across intellectual, cultural, political, social, economic, legal, industrial and domestic spheres. NFAW is a feminist organisation, independent of party politics and working in partnership with other women’s organisations.
Each year an Annual Dinner is held by the NFAW at the National Press Club to share the many and varied voices of Australian Women. In 2021, we are delighted to announce that Dr Janine Mohamed, Narrunga Kaurna woman and CEO of the Lowitja Institute (Australia's National Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research) is to be the keynote speaker for the NFAW Annual Dinner 2021, speaking on 'The Great Australian Dreaming'.
Janine Mohamed is a proud Narrunga Kaurna woman from South Australia. Over the past 20 years, Janine has worked in nursing, management, project management, and workforce and health policy in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health sector. Many of these years have been spent in the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health sector at state, national and international levels, and most recently as the previous CEO at the Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives (CATSINaM). Janine is now based in Melbourne as the CEO of the Lowitja Institute. She was awarded an Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity Fellowship in 2019, and, in January 2020, was awarded a Doctorate of Nursing honoris causa by Edtih Cowan Univer
