Remarkable NCWNSW Members recognised in the Australia Day Honours List.

Annie Kiefer AM
Barbara Baikie OAM

Australia Day 2023 started with our Patron, Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC KC, Governor of New South Wales, at the “WugulOra, ‘one mob’ to remind us of an ancient culture and a history which is written in the landscape and embedded in the ageless traditions of art, dance and song…


WugulOra is the connection we have with family, community, land and with each other. It speaks not only to our oneness but to the sacredness of these connections.”


Then joy to hear of our member, friend and colleague, Annie Kiefer AM, being recognised in the Australia Day Honours. A well-deserved accolade for her for many, many years of service to the community and women.


Also, for her service to women’s affairs (and other community work), Barbara Baikie OAM was recognised. Barbara is a past president of the National Council of Women of Australia and was an Australian representative to CEDAW.


Like many of their cohort of awardees, both women continued their service throughout times of personal duress.


Congratulations, so proud of both of you – bravo!


Julie Morris
