Reconciliation Week Repodcast: Rethinking the meaning of ‘country’ and how we can be allies in the board room with Amber Roberts
Today on the Take on Board podcast, Helga will be speaking with Amber Roberts. It's reconciliation week in Australia this week so we are repodcasting Helga's conversation with Amber, an Aboriginal woman from far north Queensland.
Amber is senior manager at 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”.
