Bendigo Engagement Manager

Leah Rickwood (She/Her), Australia

Leah Rickwood is a Manager at our Empowerment Hub in Bendigo. In her role at SisterWorks, Leah coordinates workshops, mobile hubs and mentoring opportunities for the refugee, migrant and asylum seeking women living in the regional centre of Bendigo. Her journey with SisterWorks began in July 2019 when she began volunteering at the newly formed Bendigo Hub. She finds the most rewarding part of her role with SisterWorks is watching it grow and fostering a warm, welcoming community of Sisters and volunteers.

She is currently studying a Bachelor of Human Services/Master of Social Work at La Trobe University and in her spare time she loves to create art, go on bush walks and tend to her garden.

"I’m always delighted to meet the women that walk through the door and to be able to play a part in each Sister’s journey of settling into Australia and the local community. I meet so many beautiful people in this job and I love that no two days are the same!"
