Meet the facilitation team

Rona Scherer, Aunty Mary Graham and Jan Ungerer

Since we were founded in 1992, the Workforce Council has supported the health and community services industry to meet their current and future workforce needs, and has developed into one of Queensland’s leading industry bodies.

Over more than two decades, the Workforce Council has developed unique and effective expertise which is underpinned by a truly collaborative approach and deep connections with industry, community and government.

We enhance the important work being done by health and community services worker throughout Queensland who provide essential services that make our communities healthier, more liveable and cohesive.

Rona comes from the Yalanji and Mamu peoples of Far North Queensland, having a strong and active role in her homelands. She comes with diverse experiences from administration to curating art exhibitions and conducting workshops and conferences presentations. Rona also sits on the Board of Mullen Bun Goon for the Mamu Tropical Skywalk in Far North Queensland.

Cultural inclusion and safety within Australia are on a very long journey.  There is much work to be done within workforce and with organisations who are seeking to begin those conversations.  Rona sees her current role as a Workforce Consultant as her way to support making that cultural shift towards a truly reconciled and progressive nation.

Mary is a Kombu-merri woman from Queensland’s Gold Coast region. Throughout the many jobs she’s undertaken – from chef to university lecturer – her drive has been a search for meaning. The author of important essays on the differences between Indigenous and non-Indigenous thought, she says she writes to further the conversation Australians should be having. At the centre of Indigenous beliefs, she says, are ‘the land is the law’ and ‘you are not alone in this world’. Mary is currently working with the Kummara Association to strengthen Indigenous families.

Jan has a wealth of experience working in the human services area, having worked across a range of community, educational and business contexts. She has worked in a variety of roles, including Early Childhood Teacher, Senior Project Officer for National Disability Services, Learning and Development Coordinator, presenter, freelance facilitator, and host of conversations that matter which supports individuals and organisations to engage in meaningful dialogue to lead and promote chance. Most recently, Jan's experience has been in the facilitation of Yarn Up Tok Blo Yumi and other programs aimed at leading change in cultural inclusion across health and community services and education.
