Choosing Directors and Board Members
The primary purpose of the Wunan Foundation is to provide local Aboriginal people with better life choices and help them achieve greater self-empowerment through tailored programs and partnerships with a clear focus on housing, education, employment.
The Wunan Board of Directors consists of 8 highly respected Indigenous leaders representing the 3 wards in the East Kimberley, including remote communities. Directors serve a term of 3 years and are self-nominated and elected based on their skills and how they can assist Wunan in their mission of improving the lives of Aboriginal people in the East Kimberley. Directors are also elected based on how their personal beliefs and behaviours align with the Wunan philosophy and their individual contributions to the community.
The Wunan Board’s Members have a diverse skill set across a range of areas including community projects and engagement, local business initiatives, WA Government Department projects and non-government sector business. Several members have extensive skills in Indigenous affairs, Indigenous governance and non for profit business models.
