Mature Women Can

Mature Women Can

Dr Susan Mitchell's term as South Australia's Mature Women's Ambassador ended 30 June 2018. The Ambassador project, funded by Office for the Ageing and supported by COTA SA and the Office for Women, raised awareness and produced the resource Mature Women Can!

The resource makes a compelling case for increasing the participation of mature women in employment. In a series of in-depth interviews, the Ambassador spoke to many South Australian women, who told us about the barriers they face in the paid workforce. Their stories have shaped Mature Women Can!, and we thank all of these women for coming forward and sharing their personal stories with us.

Even though the project has finished, we still invite you to share your stories, ideas and solutions with us, whether you're an individual, a business or another kind of organisation. You can use #maturewomencan on Facebook and Twitter or tell us your stories via our email to cotasa@cotasa.org.au.

COTA SA is keen to build on the Ambassador's work as well as addressing broader mature employment issues. We are establishing what we can do in this space and who can help us.

COTA SA will continue to champion the cause of older women looking for employment.
