Reflections of the Voice
Later this year, Australia will vote on whether to change the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.
The Voice calls for real, meaningful change to address the power imbalances that have long disadvantaged Indigenous Australians.
The Honourable Robert French AC will briefly present on the history, context and issues regarding the Voice, followed by an interview by our Patron Michael Chaney AO and questions from the audience.
THE CHARLES HARPER PRIZE
The Charles Harper Prize was established in 2000 as a means of recognising MBA students who make an outstanding contribution to the UWA MBA program. The award is conferred to the full-time or part-time student who has, in the opinion of the selection committee, made the greatest overall contribution to the program.

THE GMA LEGENDS AWARD
The GMA Legends Award is one we hope all GMA members strive to achieve. Introduced in 2014 initially as an Honorary Lifetime Award, it has been subsequently awarded to recognise a special contribution made by a GMA member or members.
Who will this years winner be?
