As an organisation, YMAC has always been proud of the achievements of staff. We’d like to start off the year by congratulating Kirst Anderson on two recent achievements.
Kirsty will be known to many as YMAC’s Heritage Manager for the last two years. In December 2019 Kirsty was appointed YMAC’s Acting Director of Projects. This new role involves leading staff responsible for much of YMAC’s service provision to PBCs and Aboriginal Corporations, including in the areas of governance and Executive office services, Land Administration, Land and Sea Management Programs, and Heritage Services.
In January, Kirsty Anderson was awarded a highly sought-after scholarship from Curtin University, being a recipient of the Women in MBA (WIMBA) scholarship for embarking on a Masters of Business Administration. WIMBA is a merit-based scholarship awarded to women who have a record of exceptional academic achievement, are on track for a career in senior or executive management, demonstrate strong leadership skills, and a focus on community and social outcomes.
Kirsty will balance the MBA with full-time work at YMAC.
“I am proud and humbled to be a recipient of this scholarship program and I would like to thank the Curtin Graduate School of Business and Law and YMAC for their support and faith in my skills and prospects,” Kirsty said.
