Media Advisor to the Panel for the Constitutional Recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples
Ethos CRS Consulting
Working as a media advisor to the Panel, I develop sustainable relationships with stakeholders, the media and Indigenous communities to promote Constitutional change. I have been involved in the development and roll-out of the Panel’s Communications Strategy, detailing public promotion through the media, the website, events and media releases. My primary focus is to facilitate conversations with an audience ranging from remote to urban, young to old, educated to uninformed. My duties include:
- Creating a media network of newspapers, radio and television stations across Australia to promote the Panel’s work, communicating via media releases and updates;
- Organizing promotional events and harboring relationships with NGOs working for Indigenous community development, such as Reconciliation Australia, the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience and Youth Connections;
- Delegating between Panel members and the media both face-to-face at public consultations and through secondary communication to facilitate engagement;
- Developing and briefing the Panel in strategic media management, involving media training for members in response to Panel developments.
