Leadership Victoria and The Voice

Leadership Victoria brings together leaders with different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives, and inspires and encourages them to challenge systemic barriers to equality, inclusion and sustainability.

In this, we aim always to be active allies to First Nations peoples, in particular by embedding First Nations voices, culture and community into our program experiences, and by supporting First Nations leaders to participate in our programs.

LV welcomes the invitation of the Uluru Statement from the Heart to walk with First Nations peoples “in a movement of the Australian people for a better future”, and its call for Voice, Treaty and Truth.

We all have a responsibility to understand the importance of the Voice Referendum, and to make an informed vote.  To that end, we should be clear on the question being asked, seek unbiased information to help us decide, and show leadership in helping others do the same.

Leadership Victoria recognises 65,000 years of custodianship of this land by First Nations people, the world’s longest continuing culture, and supports the right of self-determination of First Nations people to bring that knowledge, culture and wisdom to decisions that affect their lives.
