Abstract

This article investigates, from the findings of previous doctoral research, the intersectional challenges that ultimately contribute to developing and determining the strong voices of Indigenous women's leadership in the Australian context. Utilizing Indigenous women's standpoint theory as the guiding frameworks for the research, 20 Indigenous women were interviewed as part of a broader project investigating Indigenous women's leadership. A number of themes emerged in understanding what it means to be an Indigenous woman leading in the present day. The article concludes that Indigenous Australian women face unique challenges in their leadership trajectory and attempts to reframe some of those challenges into opportunities.
