Leah Bennett – Taking accountability and protecting your finances Rich Blak Women

    • Society & Culture

Leah is a proud Wiradjuri woman currently on Dharawal country. She has more than ten years of experience working within the financial services industry, specialising in financial crime and superannuation. She sits on the board for two not-for-profit organisations, including our own First Nations Foundation.
In this really insightful episode, we talk about taking accountability for your own financial wellbeing, the loneliness of being Indigenous in the corporate world, saying yes in your career, and protecting yourself from financial crime.
Rich Blak Women is a podcast from national Indigenous not-for-profit First Nations Foundation, following stories of culture, strength, challenge, and resilience from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women – rich in culture, value, and mindset.
Conversations aim to deepen awareness about the unique economic inequities’ First Nations women face, investigate success and connection to culture, empower financial wellbeing through shared experiences and learnings, and build community and allies.
The First Nations line-up of guests include Leah Bennett (Board Director at First Nations Foundation and Financial Crime Manager), Mikaela French (Native Title solicitor), Dorothy Smith (Palm Island Women’s Healing Centre coordinator), Allira Davis (Uluru Youth Manager), Tanya Denning-Orman (Director of Indigenous Content, SBS & NITV), Allira Potter (intuitive healer and author), and Dixie Crawford (Managing Director, Nganya).
Host, Larisha Jerome, is a proud Jarowair, Wakka Wakka & Wulli Wulli woman who grew up on Darug Country in Western Sydney and has an extensive background in banking, women’s health, government, and community services. She leads the Foundation’s Women’s Financial Wellness work addressing the economic injustice First Nations people face and empowering women to achieve full financial wellness and independence.
Rich Blak Women will be available on most podcast platforms and can be streamed from First Nations Foundation directly. For more information, please visit tomorrowmoney.co/women/rbw
