Women* with disabilities have equal rights and are valued, respected and empowered so they can thrive.
WWDACT undertakes systemic advocacy to advance and uphold the rights to freedom, health and dignity of women* with disabilities.
We are affiliated as a Disabled Person’s Organisation (DPO) and are primarily led and governed by women* with disabilities.
We aim to be as inclusive and intersectional in our advocacy as possible.
We follow a human rights philosophy, based on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).
We focus on achieving the best outcomes for women* with disabilities by informing our work on lived experience, national and international research and data.
Influence policies and programs to improve the lives of women* with disabilities in the ACT.
Decision-makers implement policies and programs that reflect the needs and address the barriers experienced by women* with disabilities in the ACT.
Our members’ experiences are central to all our work.
Women* with disabilities in the ACT are meaningfully engaged to inform our advocacy.
Strengthen our processes and build organisational capacity to achieve our mission and strategic objectives.
The organisation’s operations are strong, financially viable and values based, so we are an employer of choice.
