First Nations Voice to Parliament

Online, BWA Webinar: First Nations Voice to Parliament

June 9, 2023 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Online, BWA Webinar: First Nations Voice to Parliament @ Online

As a nation we have the opportunity to make history this year and take an important step on the path to reconciliation. Join Business Women Australia’s members, and guests for a meaningful conversation with Founding Director Lyn Hawkins and Kyra Galante, Worley Australia’s First Nations Participation Director.

This online, interactive webinar will be a deep dive into what a First Nations Voice would mean for our country and for all of us who call Australia home. We will cover key questions including:

  • What is the referendum all about?
  • What will the Voice to Parliament do?
  • Where did it originate and why?
  • Why is the Voice an important step?
  • What are the reasons why The Indigenous Voice has been controversial?

There will be time for Q&A and the opportunity to hear Kyra’s hopes about the future of Australia as a proud Indigenous woman.  Kyra brings to the table over 20 years’ experience facilitating partnerships with Australian corporations and Indigenous businesses to create positive socio-economic impact.

Don’t miss this important, respectful and positive conversation. Book today for the zoom link.

Everyone who shares the values of BWA embracing diversity, inclusion and conscious care are welcome.
