WAVE 2023 Annual Report

WAVE 2023 Annual Report

Women in Adult and Vocational Education (WAVE) is delighted to release its 2023 Annual Report. The report provides an overview of the organisation, our key activity over the last 12 months and information about our key partnerships. The report also provides a report on our operating principles, our values and mission as well as a report on our annual finances, and our National Executive Team.

This year has been marked by a significant increase in our advocacy work, particularly nationally where the national skills and education policy landscape has been shaped by the transformative change agenda ushered in by the Albanese Labor Government from mid 2022. This agenda has resulted in attention on education, training, employment and the centrality of skills agendas for Australia’s future prosperity. These are the core areas of WAVE’s remit - along with inter-related matters that impact gender equality in other portfolios such as welfare and migration. This has led to a year of vigilance and fast paced advocacy for WAVE.

As an organization, WAVE has remained steadfast in its commitment to enhancing the prominence of women in the workforce and education, focusing on rectifying inequities within the skills and labor market. Central to this mission is the recognition and prioritization of the lived experiences of those most disadvantaged in our education and training system, particularly women and girls. This involves acknowledging individual talents and providing unwavering support for their career growth while respecting their personal circumstances.

Despite our relatively small size, WAVE takes great pride in forging productive relationships with the Federal government.
