Morley Senior High School celebrated International Women’s Day with our annual Breakfast on Thursday, 29 February – this year’s theme being “Inspire Inclusion”. We were very fortunate to hear the inspirational journey of one of Morley Senior High School’s former students – Natasa Kusmuk-Duus, class of 2007.
Natasa’s academic background includes a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and International Relations from the University of Western Australia and a Master’s in International and Community Development, and she is currently pursuing a Doctor of Business Leadership.
A fervent advocate for volunteerism, she has given her time to many local nongovernment organisations that are focused on social justice, women’s empowerment and youth education.
She is deeply committed to diversity and inclusion and has particularly enjoyed leading projects with organisations such as the United Nations Association of Australia and Zonta International.
Special thanks to the Year 12 Certificate III Business students, who planned and ran the event. The students demonstrated strong perseverance with a ‘can-do’ attitude, collaborated well with peers and positively contributed to this team project.
As we celebrate International Women’s Day this year and reflect on the theme of Inspire Inclusion, let us reaffirm our commitment to creating a world where all women are empowered, valued, and included. By working together to break down barriers and foster diversity, we can build a more equitable and inclusive society for generations to come.
