Caulfield mum of three Nomi Kaltmann was recently selected for the Women Leading Locally Fellowship, delivered by the Institute of Community Directors Australia (ICDA).

Sixty places were offered to Victorian women in this new community leadership program to give participants the inspiration, knowledge and skills to succeed in local leadership roles.

The Victorian government has set a target of having at least 50 per cent women councillors and mayors in local government by 2025. Therefore this fellowship aims to encourage women of all backgrounds to step forward and take the opportunity to develop their leadership potential.

A lawyer, Kaltmann is no stranger to leadership, having founded the first Australian branch of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance (JOFA), of which she is the inaugural president. She also previously worked in the State and Federal Parliaments.

The fellowship Kaltmann has been selected for will also provide participants with ongoing connections and mentoring, equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to run a successful local government campaign.

“I am excited to be part of an incredible cohort of Australian women who are passionate about the representation of women in public life,” she said. “I love helping to elevate the voices of women. Women represent 50 per cent of the population yet are underrepresented in many areas.”

Kaltmann concluded that she hopes this fellowship “will help change this underrepresentation.”
