Bachelor of Arts graduate
Bachelor of Arts graduate Donisha Duff says Griffith helped launch her career in public and community service. ‘Griffith opened the door to a world of possibilities. My undergraduate studies in humanities enabled me to explore a range of interests from film studies, contemporary literature to political studies and sociology,’ she said. As an advocate for health and supporter of girls’ and women’s educational and career opportunities, Donisha has worked tirelessly to improve pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. ‘My BA(Hons) prepared me for a pathway to some high level policy development. This has taken me from the public service to the ministerial office of the first Federal Indigenous Health Minister and now to my position as General Manager for the Deadly Choices preventative health program.’
