This year the Business Council helped host a group of 50 Business Council representatives and Indigenous leaders as part of a joint Business Council/Jawun business leaders’ delegation to the Garma festival in North-East Arnhem Land. It’s our second year of sending a delegation to Garma.
Garma has grown to become an important national event, an opportunity for Indigenous, political and business leaders to shape a prosperity agenda for Indigenous Australians.
This year was a particularly significant Garma, coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the Aboriginal Land Rights Act (1976) and the historic national discussion about constitutional recognition.
Business Council Chief Executive Jennifer Westacott chaired a panel at the Key Forum on Corporate Australia and Indigenous Economic Development, together with Peter Nash (KPMG), David Lindberg (Westpac) and Mark Smith (Perpetual).
