Caroline Glass-Pattison – Committee Chair

Caroline Glass-PattisonCaroline Glass-Pattison is a proud Wiradjuri, Dungutti woman, living on Gai-mariagal Country for over three decades.

An advocate of rights and social justice for Australian’s First Nations People, with an extensive professional career, Caroline has experience working within Indigenous Affairs both government and non-government systems. Caroline has followed in her Grandmother Polly Moylan-Smith’s footsteps hope for the future as a collective of First Nations Peoples, living on the same continent, to recognise our unique environments and differences of all peoples and cultures as a great source of pride.

With 20 years’ experience working in the Community Services sector, with both Local Government and Not For Profit areas in community development, Caroline has now shifted her professional focus to wellness and wholistic healing practices.

Her vision:
To hear language of ‘disadvantage’ and ‘gaps’ disappear to be replaced with resilience, survival, excellence and innovation.
“We should acknowledge our past in full, and embrace our future”.
