Empowering Indigenous girls to reach for the stars

ExxonMobil Australia, as a Gorgon joint venture participant, is proudly supporting Stars Foundation as they help create a more positive future for Indigenous girls, empowering them to participate, thrive and succeed in their schooling.

Stars Foundation provides holistic mentoring to support one of the most at-risk groups in Australia – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women. Stars Foundation operates full-time, intensive support programs for Indigenous girls in schools, with the aim of improving health and education outcomes for the Indigenous community.

“I’m excited to support such worthwhile cause, creating opportunities for Indigenous girls by providing them ongoing support during their schooling,” said Margaret Rogacki, General Manager of Australia LNG at ExxonMobil.

“It is essential to provide a safe and nurturing environment for girls to feel supported, so they can become confident in their learning, enthusiastically participate in school and work towards an independent and successful future.”
