Bianca combines community sector and academic experience to address social justice issues. After initially volunteering in mother support groups in Paris, France, she then contributed to the ACT community sector through board roles, including her role as president of the Brindabella Women’s Group. She also enjoyed coordinating community arts projects and exhibitions and was a regular host of a local multicultural women’s radio show. Through ACT community development and team leader roles, Bianca coordinated programs to support families and seniors. More recently, she worked as a Senior Policy Advisor (Sector Development, Health & Disability) at ACTCOSS. Her PhD research project (ANU) included coordinating a memory workshop/yarning circle with Kamilaroi women (from Moree, NSW) and mothers in the ACT region. Bianca’s current work, through Families Australia and ANU respectively, focuses on gender equality, family policy and community development/engagement and continues to be informed by over a decade of practical experience running community sector programs.


I am a passionate advocate of the ACT Community Sector because it offers so many different opportunities to contribute your skills and attributes in order to really make a difference – both to individual lives and the life of our diverse – and wonderful – local community.
