The Founder and Director of the Equality Institute, Dr Emma Fulu, was in Sydney this month to receive a $10,000 InStyle and Audi Style Scholarship at the InStyle and Audi Women of Style Awards

The Awards recognise and celebrate Australia’s most accomplished and talented women for their exemplary contributions across a range of fields and professions.

Dr Fulu and her two fellow nominees, Genevieve Clay-Smith and Eleanor Gammell, were recognised for their unrelenting efforts and determination to bring about change for a better world and for the pursuit of excellence in their chosen field. The scholarship carries a $10,000 bursary to help the recipient further her efforts.

Dr Fulu was acknowledged for founding the Equality Institute in 2015 to help advance gender equality and prevent violence against women. Dr Fulu’s aim when founding The Equality Institute was to help “create a world where violence against women is a thing of the past.”

In being named as the recipient of the scholarship, the importance of preventing violence against women has once more been rightfully elevated as a key issue facing Australians, and acknowledged within commercial circles as one that is in need of continuous support. The scholarship money will contribute to expanding the the work of our organisation into the future.
