Our Board


Our Board is led by an Aboriginal women. The Board offers more than 1oo years of experience working with Indigenous communities with expertise in over 15 industries. Josephine Cashman is the Chair and Ross Stiles is the Deputy Chair of our Board.

Our Foundation has achieved access, legitimacy and trust throughout Australia. This has enabled us to partner with a variety of health, social service and Indigenous organisations to test and refine our proposed framework. We are also unique because we have also partnered with leading Australian corporations that have provided the technical, risk and legal advice critical to the success of our projects.

Big River Impact Foundation acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands we visit through the course of our work and recognise the continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders both past, present and future.
