About this episode

Reconciliation Week is a time for Australians to reflect on their shared history, cultures and achievements. It is also the time to discuss how all Australians can contribute to reconciliation and make commitments towards achieving it.

In this bonus podcast episode, Commissioner Andrea Mason OAM yarns with Ashurst’s First Nations Adviser, Trent Wallace. With Reconciliation Week underway in Australia, Commissioner Mason reflects on what “reconciliation” really means for Australians be they Indigenous or otherwise. Commissioner Mason discusses what businesses, law firms, grassroots organisations and non-First Nations people can do to support reconciliation.

The conversation also covers the high prevalence of disability among First Nations people in Australia (48% of those aged 18-65 have a disability, as do 23% of children aged 0-18), and the abuse, marginalisation and exclusion highlighted by the recent disability Royal Commission.
