RDA Ipswich & West Moreton Welcomes Dynamic New Committee Members

RDA Ipswich & West Moreton is delighted to announce the addition of two esteemed members to its committee: Michael Bishop and Katey Cochrane.

Katey’s passion for advocating women in nontraditional trades, particularly in fields like Transport and Logistics, is evident in her role at TAFE Queensland, where she champions diversity and inclusivity in regional opportunities. Katey’s impressive achievements include winning a prestigious state award in 2021 for her work on implementing a Key Account Management Framework at TAFE Queensland, which has yielded remarkable results for the business and its stakeholders. Her commitment to empowering others through guest speaking and mentorship in male-dominated industries further underscores her dedication to driving positive change.

Meanwhile, Michael brings a wealth of expertise to the committee, with a background serving on several NGO Boards and completing prestigious AICD training. His leadership roles in peak state organisations like Neighbourhood Houses Tasmania Inc, coupled with his experience in large charities such as Central Highlands Healthcare, highlight his ability to navigate complex organisational structures effectively. Michael’s dedication to diversity and inclusion is evident in his extensive work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in health service management, child protection, and youth justice.

The RDAIWM team is thrilled to welcome this dynamic duo, who are set to be invaluable assets to the Ipswich & West Moreton region.
