International Women’s Day is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It is also an opportunity to reflect on the ways we can continue to challenge gender stereotypes, discrimination, biases and seek inclusion to accelerate gender equality and create a brighter future for all.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, CBA’s Chief Operations Officer of Group Audit and Assurance, Kathy Condos, sat down with Aunty Gail Mabo to record an episode of Courageous Conversations, a CBA podcast where our people share their inspiring stories.

In this special edition, Aunty Gail talks about the traditional roles of women in her community, how she broke the mould as an Indigenous female leader, and the aspirations she has for her own daughters and granddaughters.

Aunty Gail Mabo is the daughter of educator, activist and land rights campaigner, the late Eddie Mabo. Amongst her many roles as a mother, grandmother, artist and spokesperson for her family, she is also the cultural advisor for our First Nations Bursary Program with Brisbane Boys College, supporting access to education for First Nations young people.
