Anna Stewart Memorial Project

Anna Stewart, long-time campaigner for women’s rights and prominent union official, died in April 1983 and the Anna Stewart Memorial Project was established as an annual work experience program aimed at increasing women’s active union involvement.

Participants learn about how unions work and get training in a supportive environment on key aspects of union organising and growth with a focus on women’s involvement and why unions are so critical for women.

Should you apply?

If you’re a union member and want to develop your skills and knowledge, make an important contribution to the development and growth of your union and have more involvement in the union movement more broadly then the answer is YES!

The program runs for 5 days from Monday 1—Friday 5 August 2022 in Hobart, Tasmania.

Cost is $120 plus GST (support for costs is available to AEU members – contact us)

Talk to your AEU Women’s Officer Michelle Rippon to express an interest.
