The University of Melbourne School of Rural Health and Frontline Human Resources present the Mentorship Program 2.0 at the School of Rural Health, Graham St, Shepparton on 30 July 2022. The Flamingo Project’s Mentorship Program connects women of all walks of life to help each other’s personal and professional development. Khadija Gbla will be the guest speaker.
After our successful first year, we are excited to have more women on board to participate.
We are honoured to have Khadija Gbla as our keynote speaker.
Khadija Gbla has been recognized through numerous awards including 2011 Young South Australian of the Year, 2014 The Advertiser South Australia’s 50 most Influential Women and 2013 Madison Magazine Australia’s Top 100 inspiring Women just to name a few. She is a survivor of female genital mutilation (FGM) and having experienced firsthand the devastating effects, Gbla has dedicated her life to fighting it. She has worked for 14 years to raise awareness and education about violence against women and girls, and particularly about female genital mutilation.
As an entrepreneur, inspirational speaker, facilitator, philanthropist and mentor, Khadija has displayed courage and determination. Her aspirations include giving women, youth and minority groups a voice at a local, state and international level. Khadija utilises her inspired and powerful voice to advocate for equality, diversity and inclusion.
Khadija seeks to inspire others to accept their differences and become agents of change in their communities. Khadija advocates for equality, enlivening and empowering others to act with her against the violation of human rights.
Please join us for a free event to celebrate women of the Goulburn Valley region.
