Last week Phoenix Australia announced the appointment of Ms Janine Kirk AM as Chair of the Board. She will take up the role on 1 May 2019.
The announcement notes that Ms Kirk was the founding Chief Executive of The Prince’s Trust Australia (formerly The Prince’s Charities Australia) until January 2019. She has been a strong supporter of Phoenix Australia over the past three years, collaborating on two international roundtables on disaster mental health. These roundtables resulted in the development of two world-first, evidence-based recovery programs for adults and children impacted by disaster: SOLAR (Skills fOr Life Adjustment and Resilience). “The work we did together on the roundtables was ground-breaking work, and I am really looking forward to continuing to work even more closely with the outstanding and dedicated Board and team at Phoenix Australia,” said Ms Kirk.
