Glenda Kickett

A strong Ballardong Wadjuk woman, Glenda Kickett is an inspiration to many.

She was 2010 West Australian Social Worker of the Year and is a tireless community worker.

A single parent, Glenda has a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Western Australia (UWA) where she is also completing her PhD studies and lecturing at the School of Population Studies.

Glenda was fostered out as a child and endured hardships as a result but this contributed to her resolve and passion for quality care for Aboriginal children today.

She can always be found behind the scenes at Aboriginal community events around Perth and she volunteers whatever time she has left. Glenda is also Manager for Aboriginal Therapeutic Services for the Australian Childhood Foundation and a Lecturer in Social Work at Population Health at UWA.
