Rounding off NAIDOC week and the theme ‘because of her, we can’ here we find Dr Helen Drennen AM explaining her most significant models of leadership have been Aboriginal women.
Dr Helen Drennen AM is principal at Wesley College one of Australia’s oldest leading co-educational schools and a member of the Monash University Council. She has played a leading role alongside her Aboriginal partners, the Bunuba people, in establishing the Yiramalay Wesley Studio School in the Kimberley WA.
Helen highlights the huge responsibility education has in leveraging the change and equipping future generations with the skills and expectations that are needed for the workplace. We love how she says, “This isn’t just about women, it’s about a new way of being a man”.
