Shannieka recognised with two great achievements!

As a Department, we are committed to growing and strengthening the voice of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees in shaping the strategies and initiatives that influence their working environment, and to providing opportunities for their professional growth. We also love to celebrate their successes!

We would like to congratulate Public Sector Commission trainee Shannieka Martino on her recent achievements. Shannieka is currently part of our Aboriginal Policy, Planning and Reconciliation (APPR) team, where she has worked on projects such as the launch of our new Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and is currently working on a Dual Naming project as well as supporting other programs and initiatives in the Aboriginal policy space.

In recognition of her leadership potential, Shannieka has been accepted to complete the four-month Emerging Aboriginal Leaders Program through the WA Aboriginal Leadership Institute (WAALI). This 10-week program is designed to strengthen cultural cultural and self identity, and connection to culture and community, with a focus on leadership decelopment goals.

Shannieka has also been selected to participate in Oxfam Australia’s Straight Talk National Summit 2021, which empowers First Nations women to make positive change through political and public engagement and connects them with Australia’s political system, building their capacity as change makers. Since its inception in 2009, the Straight Talk program has brought together more than 850 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women from across Australia. This year’s National Summit will be held online as a three-part mini-series across six months.
