Advocacy Hub

The NCWQ has formed an NCWQ Advocacy Hub including interested associate members, delegates of our Affiliated Organisations, NCWQ Advisors and members of the Management Committee. 

The Hub represents a change in the way we operate and advocate on behalf of women and girls. The Hub aims to be responsive to current issues. As such, those participating have been encourage to register on the Queensland Parliamentary website for updates in their areas of interest. 

The email contact for the Hub group is advocacy@ncwq.org.au 

There is flexibility to allow consultation with experts outside of the organisation, and working with the National Council of Women of Australia (NCWA) Advocacy Hub on national issues that impact women and girls. 

We continue to be guided by the International Council of Women (ICW), an umbrella organisation which unites National Councils in the broad areas of gender equality and advancing human rights in but not restricted to the following areas:

◦ Economic Independence
◦ Education
◦ Environment/ Sustainability
◦ Influence & Decision Making
◦ Health and Wellbeing
