Bond University has enjoyed a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Leann Wilson. In a variety of roles, Leann has assisted our University to develop and grow its activities, impact and understanding of indigenous culture and affairs. Leann has connected us with regional Australia and indigenous communities whom we would otherwise struggle to establish a genuine dialogue. Leann’s passion and energy is infectious. She has a very natural style that is comforting and effective when discussing awkward and sensitive topics. Leann appreciates the power of education and her philosophy of learning rather than judging has been influential in advancing our institution’s cultural understanding and diversity.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Leann and RES more broadly for a number of years. During that time, I have always admired Leann’s enthusiasm, vision and commitment to a defined process to make change. Critical in all her work is engaging in culturally appropriate conversations with respect and dignity.”
