Our Board of Management comprise both Koorie and non-Koorie members reflecting our motto of people working towards the broader goal of reconciliation for all Australians.
The Koorie Heritage Trust is also a proud participant in the Observership Program. Modeled on a similar program that operates in the United States, the Observership Program places talented professionals on non-profit boards for a period of 12 months as Observers. It is a tool to engage emerging community leaders, giving participating non-profit boards an opportunity to mentor the next generation of leaders and to engage new people in the work of their organisations. The program was launched in Melbourne in 2017 with three Indigenous recruits appointed to the Trust Board as Observers.
As part of the 2021 program, we welcome to our Board the following Observers:
