The reason Nildhara Gadani is standing for council elections

I stood for council election in 2016 as well. It was a great learning experience for me. I am running for the council election for the below reasons:

  • I believe the voices of migrants, especially women migrants, are under-represented in my council. I want to change this.
  • I believe there is work to be done to make our community even more beautiful, safe, and prosperous.

Why people should vote for me

I want people to vote for me because I have the right skills, experience, and passion for the role.

  • For the last 5 years, I have been actively involved in the community work within my council.
  • I am also a successful small business owner of two businesses – Your Career Down Under (a career coaching service) and a local arts and dance school
  • I am an educator and trainer in Early Childhood Education (education is a great passion of mine and love to help people reach their potential)

My contribution to the community

I have extensive experience across a range of community activities, giving me the skills needed to be an effective member of Whitehorse Council.

Current engagements:

  • Committee member of Vermont South Community Centre and Whitehorse Interfaith Network
  • Founder of Australia India Women Entrepreneurs Forum – a network dedicated to help migrant women establish and build their business
  • Lions Club of Vermont South (Festivals and Fundraising Assistance)
