Josey Hansen was a Noongar, wife, mother, grandmother and active member of her community. Josey was employed as an Aboriginal Consultant with Anglicare WA. In 2007 she was acknowledged at the National Anglicare Australia Awards and received the Service Excellence award for the cultural work. Josey is the founder of Blak Diamond Consulting. She had a strong belief that ‘yarning-sharing stories’ and effective use of networks has reached out to the broader community to work towards an inclusive society and serves to challenge stereotypical beliefs that are problematic in preventing people living in harmony.
Josey was a very respected Board Member of Kinship Connections who went above and beyond the call of duty with her service. She will be greatly missed.
