As we celebrate another year supporting the work of UN Women National Committee Australia through the Adelaide International Women’s Day Breakfast, we are delighted to announce that the AFL’s Tanya Hosch will be our guest speaker in 2018.
Tanya Hosch is the AFL’s General Manager of Inclusion and Social Policy and has a long and distinguished history in Indigenous policy, advocacy, governance and fundraising.
Before joining the AFL as the first ever Indigenous person and second woman in their executive ranks in August this year, Tanya was the Joint Campaign Director of the Recognise movement for constitutional reform.
At the AFL Tanya is tasked with the implementation of the AFL’s enhanced Indigenous strategy, advising the AFL Indigenous Advisory Council, reviewing the Respect and Responsibility Policy and implementing the AFL’s Gender Action Plan.
Tanya was recently appointed to the Indigenous Advisory Group of the NAB and is a Board Director of the Indigenous Land Corporation, the Australian Indigenous Governance Institute and a member of the Referendum Council.
