RIAA's First Nations Peoples' Rights Working Group is an initiative to support members in their stewardship responsibilities respecting First Nations peoples' rights in their business operations and their portfolio of companies.

Join us for an exclusive investor briefing on the much-anticipated draft principles of the Dhawura Ngilan Business and Investor Initiative with Cath Brokenborough, Executive Lead First Nations Engagement and Reconciliation at Lendlease and Chair of the Initiative, and Laura Melrose, Solicitor at leading Indigenous law firm, Terri Janke and Company, and expert on native title and cultural heritage law.

Led by the First Nations Heritage Protection Alliance in partnership with the UN Global Compact Network Australia (UNGCNA) and RIAA, these principles will be launched as guides for business and investors in 2023, positively changing the way the private sector engages with First Nations Peoples, in line with the aspirations of First Nations, international law and community expectations.

To-date, we have benefited from the insights of RIAA members HESTA, Abrdn, Australian Retirement Trust, Perpetual, Clean Energy Finance Corporation, Point Advisory and KPMG. This will be your opportunity to learn, ask questions and share feedback on this world-leading set of standards.

We will also hear updates on the role of investors with the Voice to Parliament and our working group's research project on First Nations Investment Markets.
