Kaya! November was a big month - we saw Joe Biden elected as the 46th president of the United States with Kamala Harris as Vice President, commemorated NAIDOC Week 2020, heard new gender equity data at WGEA's data launch, and celebrated the opening of WA's Boola Bardip museum. And there's only one month until 2021!
