St Kilda Gatehouse
by Dianne Azoor Hughes, Treasurer, St Kilda Gatehouse
Throughout my professional career I strived for work-life balance, I promoted gender equality and diversity, and worked to uncover the unconscious biases we each carry in the workplace and beyond.
She's Someone: Humanising women involved in street based sex work
In late 2014, St Kilda Gatehouse was approached by Tedx St Kilda. They invited Gatehouse staff to share on the Tedx stage stories from women who work on the streets. We thought about it more deeply and decided it didn’t feel right to share the women’s stories on that sort of platform. They were the women’s stories to share. We declined the invitation. The organisers at Tedx St Kilda then suggested we share our own stories. Sally Tonkin, our then CEO, did just that. In late March 2015 she shared how the values of Gatehouse and the women who we have the privilege of working with have shaped her understanding.
