Transition Board Member
Maya Avdibegovic is the CEO of InTouch, Multicultural Centre against Family Violence. InTouch is a statewide service, which provides services, programs and responses to issues of family violence in CALD communities.
Maya was born in Bosnia and graduated from Sarajevo University. She fled war-torn Bosnia in 1992 and lived in Germany for three years before migrating to Australia in 1995.
Maya has qualifications in education, accounting and business management. Since she joined inTouch in 2009, the agency has expanded its work across the continuum of family violence and implemented a range of innovative initiatives leading inTouch towards its long-term goal of becoming a multi-disciplinary service ‘a one-stop-shop’ for CALD victims of family violence. Being a refugee and a migrant herself, Maya is passionate about supporting migrant women and their families to settle in Australia and have equitable access to services.
Maya was a member of DVRCV's Board prior to the decision to merge with Domestic Violence Victoria and will continue to serve on the Transition Board overseeing this change during 2020-21.
