WIZO Victoria welcomes new President Helen Granek.‘As the new President of WIZO Victoria, I am continuing my personal WIZO journey. A journey that began with my mother, a new immigrant, who immediately joined WIZO Kinnereth. WIZO empowers and facilitates opportunities to effect change in society and I would like my family, particularly my daughter, daughter-in-law and granddaughters to see that I am involved with a community who are initiators, doers and most of all givers.’
WIZO Victoria also welcomes Dione Phillips to the position of Executive Director. Dione has worked at a global Pharmaceutical company, specialising in Marketing and Events and holds a Bachelor of Business Degree in Marketing and Human Resource Management. ‘I have a passion for women’s empowerment and having two primary school aged children I understand the importance of children’s education and well-being. I have been truly inspired by the women volunteers and the projects in Israel funded by WIZO. I’m looking to bring a fresh outlook to WIZO and build our awareness in the community’.
WIZO is recognised by the United Nations as a Non-Government Organisation, with consultative status on ECOSOC and UNICEF.
