About Strong Sista Awards:
Each year Indigenous Employment Partners recognises Strong Sistas helping to keep our communities safe and strong.
As pillars of our society, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have always had active and significant roles in our communities.
They are our Mothers, Elders, Grandmothers, Aunties, Sisters and Daughters and all have amazing stories to share with one resounding similarity…
They are exceedingly strong and resilient First Nations women and have risen from adversity to become highly capable community carers, advocates, educators, and leaders with an unwavering commitment to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
IEP respectfully acknowledges the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have as cultural caretakers – keeping Aboriginal culture safe, strong, and alive.
