Chief Executive Officer
Rhonda Evans is the Chief Executive Officer for Judumul Aboriginal Corporation. She comes to this position after a 20-year career in Local Government. During this time she held management positions with Councils around the State, including the Shires of Menzies, Coolgardie, Wyndham-East Kimberley and Brookton, the Town of Claremont, and the City of Swan.
Since her retirement in 2019, she has joined Judumul assisting the Board of the Corporation to develop the organisation. It has been during this time that she has attained a greater understanding of the enormous challenges facing First Nations People in everyday life.
The development of employment programs for the long term unemployed are Rhonda’s current focus. A new model for employment is required that better suits the culture and lifestyle of many people who are excluded from employment by the rules and expectations of out of date practices entrenched in many businesses and in the minds of their management.
