Gail Reynolds-Adamson, AM

Board Director

We’re thrilled to welcome Odonata’s newest board member, Gail Reynolds-Adamson (AM). Gail is a proud descendant of the Wadjuri people and is a woman of many talents and hats, working across more Aboriginal-led, owned and operated organisations than we can list, so it came as a huge honour when she accepted our invitation to join the Board.

We first met Gail when working with Esperance Tjaltjraak Native Title Aboriginal Corporation to develop and deliver our Rejuvenation Tree collaboration, which is a first-of-its-kind land ownership and carbon project model that secures legal title for Traditional Owners, restores the health of Country, and creates long term income for Traditional Owners to meet their priority of true self-determination.

Gail recently hosted Cultural Awareness Training for the Odonata executive and some of our corporate and community partners. She delivers complex and sometimes traumatic content with grace, knowledge, and provides a safe space for truth-telling and collective learning.

Gail not only brings decades of business acumen, expertise in Native Title and Indigenous affairs, but also the skills and knowledge to support and advise on the best path to true collaboration between Traditional Owners and Odonata, as we work together on Country to restore landscapes and reintroduce native flora and fauna.

Gail is also Chair of Esperance Tjaltjraak Native Title Aboriginal Corporation, on the Board of Directors of the Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation and The King’s Trust Australia, and is a member of the First Nations Landcare Working Group.

Welcome, Gail.
