Updated: Sep 13, 2021

As part of the Wiyi Yani U Thangani project, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner June Oscar AO is establishing a Wiyi Yani U Thangani Design Committee for the establishment of a National First Nations Women and Girls Advisory Body (Design Committee). Over the course of October 2021, the Design Committee will: 1. Design a process for selecting National First Nations Women and Girls Advisory Body, design, and implementation (Selection Process Document). 2. Provide a draft Terms of Reference for the National First Nations Women and Girls Advisory Body including draft governance protocols and a draft scope of work (Draft ToR Document). The Australian Human Rights Commission is seeking six First Nations women and girls including those in the LGBTQIA+BB+SG community with experience in governance, systems change, gender equality, culturally informed policy, research and evaluation, community development and legislative reform. Interested candidates are invited to submit an expression of interest by 5:00pm (east coast time) on Sunday 12 September 2021 to Lluwannee.george@humanrights.gov.au. Expressions of interest should be limited to one page and include answers to the following questions:

What do you see as the key considerations when designing a process for a National Advisory Body? What are the risks you would be wary of and what mitigation strategies would you put in place?
