WAVE is a national network of women involved in VET, adult education and the broad field of work-related education and training. WAVE provides seminars & workshops, research, policy advocacy and advice, as well as networking on an international, national and state basis. We are supported within each state by local representation that in turn contributes collaboratively to national events and governance. WAVE was formed in 1985, the first and only national and autonomous non-government organisation for Australian women in the adult, community and vocational education and training sector. For the first 14 years we called ourselves the Network of Women in Further Education. (NOW in FE)
In Memory of Sue Salthouse
A committed disability advocate, feminist and long time member of WAVE Executive representing the ACT.
Sue lived a remarkable life, which is recorded in part here at the Libraries ACT website and recognised further in her award as 2020 ACT Senior Australian of the Year. She will be very much missed by WAVE members who worked with her over the years, her loss is beyond words. Her contributions, clear informed thinking, passion and sisterhood are profoundly appreciated and respected with love and gratitude.
Our sincere sympathy to Sue's family & friends at this time of grief, sadness & remembering. Here is a link to an article in the Canberra Times recognising some of Sue's remarkable achievements.
Executive members Jan Edwards and Elaine Butler have been working on a research proposal for a partnership grant from the National Careers Institute. Read more
