Future Women acknowledges the land on which our team members live and work. From the wet and windy lands of the Kulin nations, to the Kaurna people’s rolling Adelaide plains, to Gadigal and Gumbaynggirr land where the sun always shines, the first owners of our national capital, the Ngunnawal people, and across the seas to the land of the Maori people of New Zealand. We pay our respects to elders past and present. We recognise that the Aboriginal land on which many of our team work has never been ceded and the work of reconciliation is not yet done. Future Women are committed to continuing the conversations about women and their work that have taken place on this land for tens of thousands of years.
