Stella celebrates women writers’ place in Australian literature to create a vibrant and equitable national culture.
Through initiatives such as The Stella Prize, Stella strategically intervenes to address structural and systemic barriers to access and representation for women writers, and delivers programs that improve access and equity for under-represented writers.
Books are essential to a just society. Sexism doesn’t occur in isolation. Collective action is critical. First Nations first. Data can inform and empower. These are Stella’s guiding principles. If they resonate with you and you would like to be instrumental in driving Stella’s future then we’d welcome a conversation.
The Executive Director – Co CEO is responsible for the strategic leadership of Stella’s development and fundraising activities, ensuring the company demonstrates innovation and a sophisticated donor-focused approach to long-term sustainability. A recognised leader in the philanthropic sector, the incoming Executive Director will ensure the organisation attracts the support needed to deliver significant benefits to Australian women writers. They will join Stella’s incumbent Creative Director – Co CEO to achieve Stella’s ambitious, expansive plans for the future.
Stella looks forward to welcoming a committed and passionate professional who has experience working in the not-for-profit sector, specifically philanthropy, alumni relations and/or partnerships. You will be aspirational, a relationship builder and someone who enjoys pushing boundaries.
