2022 Helen Williams Oration | Jody Broun

The annual Helen Williams Oration with Jody Broun.

IPAA is pleased to welcome Jody Broun, CEO of the National Indigenous Australians Agency, to deliver the 2022 Helen Williams Oration. 

Jody is an Yindjibarndi woman from the Pilbara in Western Australia and is passionate about social justice, community led co-design, and making a difference through changing the way government does business with Aboriginal communities and stakeholders.

Over the past 30 years, she has held various senior positions in the government and not-for-profit sectors, delivering community and state wide policy and programs, national policy reforms, and negotiating national and state government agreements. Her experience spans housing, health, education, justice, land and culture.

IPAA ACT established the Helen Williams Oration in 2018, in honour of Helen Williams AC, the first female to be appointed Secretary of an Australian Government department.
