Spotlight on Nakita Kitson, Jasmine Meagher and Luke Pearce

The South West region of Western Australia is a complex area, encompassing stunning tourism drawcards like Margaret River, alongside industrial towns feeling their way in a post-resources-boom environment. Each regional community has different needs, different priorities and often, different ideas about future directions and how to get there.

The first session of this program was in February on the eve of COVID-19 and the second session was due to commence in early May but was postponed. Program participants Nakita Kitson, Jasmine Meagher and Luke Pearce reflect on their experience to date and on how collective leadership can help move a region forward.
