We welcome Michelle, our Indigenous Liaison Consultant

One of our commitments this year is building our Indigenous workforce. We are pleased to introduce Michelle, who will be leading this initiative as our Indigenous Liaison Consultant. We look forward to sharing the meaningful impact and opportunities that she will bring to this role.

Hello, my name is Michelle Minniecon. I am a proud Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal woman from Darnley Island and the Goreng Goreng Nations (Central Queensland). I have been a part of the Member Services Team at ACA for two and a half years now, and I love being able to support all of the members who do such an amazing job!!!

I am very proud to have been given another opportunity through ACA to embark on a journey that is close to my heart, in growing our Torres Strait Island and Aboriginal Counselling workforce and to be able to assist our Indigenous counsellors in providing a strong support network to our communities in a culturally sensitive manner. I have many years of experience in working with non-governmental organisations throughout Queensland and the Northern Territory in the legal, women’s domestic violence services, youth education programs, ATODS rehabilitation services, finance, and cultural heritage fields. I am also very appreciative of the opportunity to work from the country of the Turrbal and Yuggera peoples and respectfully acknowledge the elders past present and emerging and hope that we can form strong and respectful connections. I invite our Indigenous counsellors to connect with me via Zoom on Tuesday 23 April, at 4pm AEST for a yarn. Please contact us if you would like to participate. I am looking forward to working together with you all and hearing your thoughts.

Yawor (Goodbye) Michelle
