What can our community do to support reconciliation & recognition?

Two men, from very different walks of life have developed a friendship through a common cause - helping to transform our society, particularly through the health and education sectors.  As we continue to work for justice for the First Nations, come learn from two leaders who have made a difference about the difference we can make.

Professor Ian Anderson was one of the group of three first Aboriginal medical graduates in Australia, had a career as a doctor and administrator in Aboriginal controlled health services, then in the Commonwealth Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health. He was subsequently the Foundation Chair, Indigenous Higher Education and Pro Vice-Chancellor (Engagement) at the University of Melbourne. He is currently the Deputy CEO of the National Indigenous Australians Agency in the Commonwealth Government, making him the most senior Indigenous public servant in the federal government. 

His family are Palawa Trowerna from the Pyemairrenner mob in Tasmania, which includes Trawlwoolway and Plairmairrenner and related clans.

Robert Griew is a management consultant, working mostly on health, education and Indigenous assignments. He has a long history working in social justice areas, with communities impacted by disadvantage and in government as a leader in these policy areas. He was the first head of the Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health in the Commonwealth government, the Director-General of the NT Department of Health and Community Services, has consulted extensively to Aboriginal community sector organisations and has worked extensively with Professor Anderson across several of these domains. He is also national President of the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations and a member of Emanuel Synagogue.
