Today on the Take on Board podcast, Helga will be speaking with Amber Roberts.


Amber is a non executive director of Greenpeace, Australia Pacific. And she's also the chair of the nominations committee.


Amber is the manager of PwC Indigenous Consulting, and formerly worked with the Australian Human Rights Commission, Reconciliation Australia and the Diversity Council of Australia.


The Take on Board Facebook group asked me to explore two questions. Firstly, whether and how to do an acknowledgement of country at the start of meetings and secondly, to explore board and company capacity to contribute to indigenous reconciliation. Amber brings her insights in this informative episode that will have you rethinking the meaning of “country”.
