Event description
We welcome women anthropologists working in the native title sector to attend a two-day forum on gender issues in the workplace.

About this event

About WiNTA: Women in Native Title Anthropology (WiNTA) is a project designed to target issues related to the retention of women in the sector, led by Dr. Cameo Dalley with Diana Romano of the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation, Deakin University. Throughout 2020-21 we conducted qualitative interviews focusing on the experiences of women anthropologists who have worked in native title in Australia. The findings and recommendations are in the process of being compiled in a report, to be complimented with presentations and professional development opportunities targeting key areas of concern. The focus on women and skill development aims to benefit women anthropologists, employers (including Native Title Representative Bodies (NTRBs) and Native Title Service Providers (NTSPs)), and the sector as a whole by promoting gender equity and more inclusive workplace practices. WiNTA is funded by the Attorney-General’s Department Native Title Anthropologists’ Grant Scheme.

The WiNTA Forum: We welcome women anthropologists working in native title to attend our first forum to discuss issues relating to gender in the workplace, held over two days in September 2021. Hosted in person in Melbourne and online via Zoom, the forum aims to promote a collegial and supportive environment for sharing experience, networking, and for professional development, and is free to attend. The forum will blend informative content with practical skills and techniques that women can use in their work as anthropologists. Sessions will blend a generalised approach to women in Australian workplaces with presentation of the WiNTA research findings, include panels featuring consultant and NTRB/NTSP anthropologists, and sessions highlighting practical skills, such as addressing workplace discrimination, sexual harassment, negotiating salary and contracts, and establishing a consultancy business.
