VISION AND MISSION
Khadija Gbla is a very passionate and inspiring African Australian woman. She is an award winning human rights activist, inspirational speaker, facilitator and consultant. She has displayed great courage and determination in achieving her aspirations of giving women, youth and minority groups a voice at a local, state and international level. Khadija utilises her powerful and inspired voice to advocate equality.
Differences in culture and background are simply that - differences. Not better or worse, simply different. That is why Khadija Gbla Consultancy was established.
Through a range of programs and workshops which encourage people and organisations to turn their attention inward to reflect on their potential to transform themselves and their communities,
Khadija Gbla Consultancy encourages people to challenge their understandings of the world around them.
Through my work, we address and question the uncritical acceptance of stereotypes and assumptions that are made about unfamiliar cultures. Seeing through clear eyes, and uncovering implicit bias is the key to effect change within communities and workplace cultures.
I am passionate about and dedicated to building up and promoting the advancement of a more inclusive, culturally aware and accepting society.
We see a world free of injustice and acceptance of everyone both in the workplace and in the community, no matter their culture, ethnic background or nationality.
I am an Ambassador for Our Watch, an organisation established to change attitudes of violence towards women and their children, and member of Harmony Alliance -Migrant and Refugee Women for Change aims to provide a national inclusive and informed voice on the multiplicity of issues impacting the experiences and outcomes of migrant and refugee women in Australia.
As lead campaigner and activist against Female Genital Mutilation in Australia, I am part of a global wave of advocacy to protect and support women and girls living with or at risk of female genital mutilation (FGM).
I am a human rights activist with a passion for gender equality and anti racism.
