“Dhiira applies a First Nations Lens to the HR space, rewriting the terms by which we engage with our people, putting the human back in human resources,” Leroy said.
With Leroy’s lens on the world being one of opportunity, not challenge or obstacle, he is forging a new lane. Dhiira helps businesses to capitalise on the potential for Diversity and Inclusion in their workforce, creates employment strategies, evaluates and writes policy and procedure, trains on Aboriginal Recruitment, helps clients to understand differences to level the playing field, and much more. Their work with businesses helps Aboriginal People and Communities.
We asked Leroy what he is passionate about, and this is what he had to say:
“I am driven by one thing, it is my why and it is clear. As the oldest of a generation I have an obligation to lead, to create foundations and to support my family both in a cultural context and a western context. My why is this: ‘To ensure that my generation is better than the ones that walked before me, and that the generations after me continue to be better than my own.’
“Reconciliation to me is about unity, how we re-write the history of this Nation to be factual, true and with the correct perspectives,” Leroy said.
“Once we are set on a foundation of truth telling we can continue to push forward. We have the opportunity to practice the ethos of reconciliation every day in our businesses, in our families and communities. We share our stories, correct mis-truths and stand strong in our identities. We all have a part to play and that is why Reconciliation Australia and National Reconciliation Week are inherently important to our joint, collaborative mission toward a better tomorrow.”
