Engaging Community, Engaging your Business

At this Indigenous Network, we looked at how businesses can commit to a meaningful and respectful working engagement with Indigenous communities while building respect for their heritage, cultures and knowledge.

We explored:

  • How to effectively approach Community members;
  • How to engage with these Communities respectfully to work with your business;
  • What Community conscious engagement is;
  • How to design and implement an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander advisory panel and what its role can be;
  • How positive connection can benefit both the organisation and the Community.

Our emcee, Kate Russell, Chair of DCAs Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander External Advisory Panel, had a yarn with our expert guest speakers which included:

  1. Celest Dargan, Aboriginal Workforce & Industry Participation Manager, Lendlease,
  2. Jason Timor, Director, Two Point Co, and
  3. Andy Meehan, General Manager, Policy, Research & Strategic Programs, Reconciliation Australia.
