Ep. 77 Being The Change & Bridging The Knowledge Gap, with Rona Glynn-McDonald From Common Ground

Rona Glynn-McDonald works with high impact organisations to propel social change, with a strong passion for disruptive ideas.

She is a proud Kaytetye woman and the founder of Common Ground, an online space that shares Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, histories and lived experiences. Rona aims to help create an Australia that embraces and celebrates our First Australians.

Rona impressed me immensely. She has such an array of knowledge in many different areas and her professionalism aligns beautifully with her passion.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The difficulty of understanding what the appropriate terminology is to use when referring to Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders.
  • How Rona’s grandmother being part of the stolen generation has fuelled her drive to establish common ground.
  • Why as a nation we aren’t united, celebrating and embracing our first Australians.
  • We learn about kinships, moieties and totems
  • Rona shares her virtual reality vision and how this can impact common ground significantly
  • We learn about her desire to be a change maker and so much more!
