Tanya Cameron appointed to Research Foundation
The NSW Government has appointed Country Women’ Association of Australia President, Tanya Cameron OAM, to the Centre for Work Health and Safety (CWHS) Research Foundation.
The Research Foundation, a committee made up of experts in research, business and government, works side-by-side with the CWHS to provide credible and ethical research to inform decision making.
Minister for Better Regulation, Kevin Anderson, said Mrs Cameron’s experience and extensive knowledge of agriculture and rural life would be invaluable assets to the Research Foundation.
“You would be hard pressed to find a stronger advocate for health and wellbeing in rural communities than Tanya, and we’re delighted to have her join the Research Foundation,” Mr Anderson said.
“Her wealth of experience will enable her to represent the interests of our farmers and those living in the country when it comes to safety issues.”
Mrs Cameron said that her previous roles as CWA of NSW State President, councillor at Walgett Shire and a partner in a farming enterprise will aid her in this new role.
“After becoming involved with my local CWA branch I started advocating to decision makers on issues affecting rural, regional, and remote women, families, and communities,” Mrs Cameron said.
“I’m very passionate about rural and regional Australia, having been involved in agriculture for most of my life, and look forward to continuing my work in this new position.”
