Shay-Leigh Willis - Finalist for the 2019 Chief Minister's Inclusion Awards
Shay-Leigh Willis is a finalist for the Emerging Young Leader award at the 2019 ACT Chief Minister’s Inclusion Awards.
Living with a number of disabilities, Shay encourages others to work towards inclusion. In her role as a Youth Group leader, she has provided and participated in multiple education sessions with young people around understanding ability, and universal design thinking.
Shay took over the role of President of Diversity ACT at a time of great challenge for the organisation - under her leadership, the organisation has already met its strategic goals for 2019 and the youth group has gained new members, won a grant application and completed a major artwork.
