Stephanie Mendis has worked as a social worker for nearly twenty years. She has worked with young people and adults across sectors including mental health, AOD, housing, seeking asylum/refugee, ACCOs (Aboriginal Community Controlled organisation) and family violence.
Steph has held a number of roles with different organisations, including leadership and supervision roles and direct practice roles.
Steph endeavours to be client-led in her practice and she has an interest in how cross-cultural conversations are defined and imagined. Steph brings her lived experience of working within organisations as a woman of colour and is curious about our role as workers to challenge ideas of privilege and power.
