Renee discusses her personal highlights from the UNCSW in New York. In particular the opportunity to gain further insight into the unique challenges faced by indigenous women around the world. As part of the Global Voices Research Fellowship Renee authored a research paper on educational opportunities for Aboriginal women with recommendations to improve the current disparity.

The paper titled 'Invest in an Indigenous girl, and she’ll do the rest: Empowering girls today makes for a more prosperous tomorrow', can be found in the 'Research' section of our website.
