At AHCSA, we appreciate the incredible contribution that women have made and continue to make every day to the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Sector and more broadly to our communities, not just today on International Women’s Day, but every day.
This year's International Women's Day theme is #BreakTheBias and it encourages us to "imagine a gender equal world. A world free from bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we an all Break The Bias."
As a testament to her hard work in the Aboriginal Health Sector, to improve the health outcome of her mob and for challeneging the bias that currently exists for female Aboriginal leaders, we would like to introduce Tallulah Bilney.
Tallulah is the RTO Training and Compliance Coordinator at AHCSA and is continuing to pave the way for not just herself, but other female Aboriginal leaders in the sector to thrive.
A proud Aboriginal woman who belongs to the tribes Wirangu, Kokatha, Mirning, Barngarla and Marlinyu Ghoorlie, Tallulah was born and raised in Ceduna, 550km northwest of Adelaide.
“I am passionate about bettering health and the understanding of health for my people,” says Tallulah.
“I am grateful to be a female Aboriginal leader at AHCSA, and also to share this energy and work with other strong female Aboriginal leaders – it’s inspiring. I feel that I do have others that look up to me and I am happy to be able to pave pathways and support them through their own journeys,” she says.
“The concept of Aboriginal health can be very overwhelming and confronting, but if we continue to work together we will continue to thrive and have better outcomes for our mob.”
Tallulah is one of many strong, passionate and hardworking Aboriginal women at AHCSA and we are certainly looking forward to seeing where her journey in Aboriginal Health takes her and the outcomes she can achieve.
