EDO is excited to announce that Casey Kickett has recently commenced in the role of First Nations Director.
Casey is a proud Noongar woman with connections to Yued, Ballardong, Whadjuk and Wardandi Noongar Countries. Casey lives on Whadjuk Noongar land in Western Australia. She brings to the role a wealth of experience and expertise, particularly in Traditional Owner engagement, Aboriginal Heritage, Native Title and ILUA compliance.
EDO’s commitment to hiring a First Nations Director is in line with recommendations made by the Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education and Research and Madjulla Inc., two leading First Nations think-tanks who were engaged to undertake consultancies on the design of EDO’s First Nations Program.
As First Nations Director, Casey will lead this Program and begin the important work needed to ensure EDO is centering First Nations’ laws and perspectives in our practice and empowering First Nations to protect their Countries and Cultures.
We are delighted to announce Casey’s position during NAIDOC Week, and commit as an organisation to continue to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! with First Nations in our work.
