The Dialogue interviews remarkable people By Natascha Moy
Tanya Jackson-Vaughan is an exceptional woman. As the Executive Director of RACS the refugee advice and casework service she is responsible for managing and growing as well as fundraising for a vital immigrant resource. Her desire to help people has led her down an exciting and challenging path. Starting in the fast paced film and TV industry in the UK Tanya travelled back to Sydney to pursuit additional film opportunities but soon the challenges of being a mother and career worker in the unforgiving film industry had her turning towards helping refugees navigate the English language. Soon she found herself running the much needed RACS organisation where she leads a team of lawyers who assist refugees in how to manage their rights and legal disputes.
