Louise O’Reilly is a Warrwa-Noongar Aboriginal woman based in Boorloo (Perth, Western Australia) on Wadjuk Country. Through her experiences with identity and personal journey of self-discovery, she realized society wasn't always accepting of her identity, community, or culture. Louise provides online courses to stimulate harmonious & inclusive change in the world where every global citizen can say I'm #FreeToBeMe. That’s the big picture goal. For now, she is focused on cultural diversity & inclusion of Aboriginal people and culture.
She is a freelance writer for Amnesty International Australia and a radio host for an Aboriginal women's self-empowerment program called Yorgas Yarning (women talking) on 100.9fm Noongar Radio. She is a committee member for the Danjoo Koorliny (Walking Together) Aboriginal-led 10yr visionary reconciliation/conciliation plan for Boorloo (Perth) which is hosted by the University of Western Australia's Social Impact Unit. Louise also runs her own personal business, The Ascension Personal Development Academy
If you will let her, Louise will show you how to use your words to create inclusion and how to make it ripple out into the world.
The difference between diversity and inclusivity The importance to create a safe space for all to belong Why the subconscious guilt of white privilege stops us from reaching out in order to dissolve racism. The foundations of inclusive language Why our intention to learn outweighs the fear of offending Why Acknowledgement of Country should be embraced and honored. And the importance of having privilege.
