State and Federal governments are working alongside Aboriginal people and communities to make sure their voices are heard and interests represented. Two of the key organisations driving this is Reconciliation Australia and the Aboriginal Housing Office - both led by outstanding individuals.
Karen Mundine is the Chief Executive Officer of Reconciliation Australia and is from the Bundjalung Nation of northern NSW.? For more than 20 years Karen has led high profile community engagement, public advocacy, communications and social marketing campaigns. She was instrumental in such watershed national events as the 1997 Australian Reconciliation Convention, Corroboree 2000, Centenary of Federation commemorations and the Apology to the Stolen Generations.
Jody Broun joined FACS as Chief Executive of the Aboriginal Housing Office in November 2018. Previously Jody held various senior positions in the government and not for profit sector. She has been responsible for delivery of community and state-wide policy and programs, developing and contributing to national policy reforms, and negotiating national and state government agreements.
Reconciliation Australia was established in 2001 and is the lead body for reconciliation in the nation and the Aboriginal Housing Office ensures Aboriginal people have access to affordable, quality housing.
