We had:

Tia Bravery, Omnipod user talking about Simplifying the burden of diabetes. Tia was diagnosed at 14-years-old and is a new user to Omnipod. As an avid runner, Tia found her diabetes incredibly stressful to manage but since changing to pod therapy has found a new lease of life.

Tony McAvoy SC, Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owner, talking about First Nations people want clean energy say. Indigenous communities forced to rely on dirty, expensive and unreliable power are demanding a seat at the table to ensure Australia’s renewables boom works for them. Warumungu Traditional Owner Norman Jupurrurla Frank is part of a network working to ensure projects secure Indigenous jobs and respect Native Title.

Samantha Rudolph, Aboriginal Policy Officer Advocates for Indigenous consumers have welcomed a new parliamentary enquiry looking into corporations ripping off Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander customers. The “How the corporate sector establishes models of best practice to foster better engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander consumers” inquiry opens for submissions on November 25, and follows highly publicised cases of Indigenous people being taken advantage of by phone providers and funeral insurance companies.
