June has been perhaps a slightly more relaxed month in terms of public engagements for the TABOO team, but we’ve been busy in the behind the scenes and in the office applying for grants and working on the design on the new website which will be rolled out very shortly. Stay glued to our Instagram for updates on the launch of the new site. We’re so excited to share it with you!
This month Izzy and Eloise travelled to Alice Springs, Nhulunbuy and Darwin. There they met with health organisations, rural and city, youth councils and other networks, like NPY Women’s Council. NPY Women’s Council are a powerful group of people who have inspired us since 2018 with their deep knowledge, respect and proactive work supporting Aboriginal women across Australia. Izzy and Eloise also Spoke to primary and secondary school girls about menstruation.
Any other business:
- Eloise spoke at the Accelerator for Enterprising Women Adelaide Summit Event in adelaide
