Episode 13: Shelley Reys on creating a culturally competent Australia, one workplace at a time

Welcome back to “A Cuppa and A Yarn”, hosted by Michelle Aleksandrovics-Lovegrove and brought to you by the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council. Our guest this week is a woman who’s dedicated her life to reconciliation and social inclusion.

Shelley Reys has more than 25 years’ experience in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and reconciliation landscape, was named an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2012 for her distinguished service to Indigenous communities and was named in The Australian Financial Review’s ‘100 Women of Influence’.

Shelley talks with host Michelle Aleksandrovics-Lovegrove about her company Arrilla, her partnership with KPMG and her poignant memories of her father Frank Reys, who became world famous when he won the 1973 Melbourne Cup.
