Tiffanie, a Kamilaroi woman with English/Irish heritage, worked at Qantas for a period of nine years during which time she developed the framework for an Indigenous School Based Traineeship Program for the Airports operation, providing work experience to 20 students per year. She also undertook a detailed review of Qantas’ third Reconciliation Action Plan in 2013 where she produced a scorecard and publicly accessible report outlining Qantas’ achievements.

Tiffanie also managed the Indigenous Partnerships portfolio at Qantas between 2011 and 2014. For the last two years of her service at Qantas she managed the Community, Indigenous and Arts Partnership portfolios where she was responsible for managing 33 partners with unique needs and deliverables. She was also responsible for implementing Qantas’ fourth RAP in partnership with key internal stakeholders.

Tiffanie’s most recent corporate experience was during her time in the Sustainability Team at Westpac. She managed the governance of the existing Westpac RAP including the Westpac Indigenous Advisory Committee (WIAC) and monthly reporting on targets. During this time, in partnership with her sustainability team colleagues she co-wrote the 2018 – 2020 Elevate RAP which focused on supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities to be financially independent by providing opportunities to participate in the economy through business, to access employment opportunities at Westpac and through their supply chain partners, and by providing culturally safe and accessible products and services for Indigenous communities. In developing the 2018 – 2020 RAP Tiffanie was responsible for consulting with internal stakeholders to co-design targets that were aligned with key stakeholders’ strategic direction and which elevated Westpac’s contribution to reconciliation.
