Stars Foundation is a public company limited by guarantee and is overseen by an Indigenous-led, seven-member Board of Directors. We are proud to say that the highest levels of Indigenous and business leadership are represented.
Indigenous-led governance results in many benefits to the work of Stars Foundation, including:
- Support from the communities in which we operate
- Reflection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priorities
- Responsiveness to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander needs and feedback
Strong governance and transparency are the focus of the Stars Board and an active Audit and Risk Committee supports the Board. This ensures that our stakeholders can have highest levels of confidence in the ethics and principles of the organisation and the implementation of the Stars Mission.
Stars Foundation is a highly professional organisation that prides itself on attracting and retaining the highest quality staff. We have a high-expectations culture and know that we exist for one reason – to provide the very best support to the girls and young women in our programs.
We select our program-facing staff very carefully, based on their integrity, values and commitment. They are role models in their communities and provide inspiration, expertise and leadership to our Stars.
We are proud to say that 67 percent of our program-facing staff are Indigenous, and 88 percent are women.
