On today’s podcast, I am delighted to be joined by Professor Marcia Langton AO
Professor Marcia Langton AO joins us to discuss The Indigenous Voice to Parliament Referendum, what it is, how it will work and why it is a crucial step towards reconciliation.

She is a powerful advocate for Indigenous rights, working as a consultant to a range of government and non-government organisations, and has served on a number of committees and advisory bodies.
She has published widely on a range of Aboriginal affairs issues including land rights, the mining industry and indigenous communities, resource management and the social impacts of development.
