Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about The Australian Women’s Archives Program.

The Australian Women’s Archives Program (AWAP) is a unique and authoritative resource for information about women in Australian history and society. It was created in 1999 as a partnership between the National Foundation for Australian Women and the University of Melbourne and has two main areas of activity. Firstly, it supports original research on the lives and contributions of individual women and women’s organisations and makes that information available through the online Australian Women’s Register (www.womenaustralia.info). Secondly, AWAP encourages women and women’s organisations to preserve their history by depositing records in collecting institutions for the benefit of future generations.

Dr Louise Moran: Louise is a Canberran who came here as a small child in 1952, lived away in the 70s and 80s, and happily returned here in 1998. She holds degrees in history and education from the ANU, University of South Australia, and University of British Columbia, and had a distinguished 30-year career as a university administrator and distance educator in Australia, Canada and Sweden. She then spent a decade as a Canberra-based consultant to universities, educational systems and Commonwealth and State governments in Australia and overseas on educational policy, technologies for learning, and international education.

An historian who has published widely, she has served on the Management Committee for the Australian Women’s Archives Program since 2008 and has written several biographical entries for the Australian Women’s Register. She has served on numerous national boards and professional association bodies, and in Canberra has chaired the boards of Marymead and the Canberra College.
