Building Workplace Capability for Indigenous Australia
This Building Capability for Indigenous Australia network, sponsored by Lendlease, explored the Uluru Statement from the Heart and constitutional recognition.
Last year, the Referendum Council, commissioned by the federal government to consult widely with Indigenous people on constitutional change, issued the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
This consensus report embodied a range of recommendations, including the establishment of a ‘First Nations Voice’ in the Australian Constitution.
Late last year, the federal government rejected this key recommendation leaving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups heartbroken and progress on reconciliation stalled.
At DCA’s Building Workplace Capability for Indigenous Australia Network, sponsored by Lendlease, we invite Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander leaders to share with DCA members their thoughts on the Uluru Statement. MCed by DCA’s CEO Lisa Annese, our guest speakers included
- Thomas Mayor, former chair and advocate for the Uluru Statement from the Heart,
- Tanya Hosch, General Manager, Inclusion and Social Policy, AFL and member of The Referendum Council, and
- Professor Mick Dodson, AM, Director of the National Centre for Indigenous Studies at The Australian National University.
This network, free and exclusively for DCA members, is designed to focus on building workplaces that embrace Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander talent.
