Jason Glanville is a queer Wiradjuri start-up founder responsible for as many spectacular failures as flourishing successes in provoking institutions and reframing narratives of nation building. Jason has been privileged to lead and collaborate on the creation of First Nations-led opportunity platforms like the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence, the Australian Indigenous Governance Institute, the National Indigenous Youth Leadership Academy, the One Future Forum, the Indigenous Governance Awards, Price Waterhouse Coopers Indigenous Consulting, the Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity program, the National Congress of Australia's First Peoples and Native Foodways.
He was a co-founder and served on the staff and Board of Reconciliation Australia and has been a member of the Boards of Carriageworks, the National Australia Day Council, the Australian Museum, Social Traders, the Australian Indigenous Leadership Centre and the Australian Indigenous Governance Institute. He was also a proud Ambassador for the Recognise Campaign and loved spending a few years as a judge on the Indigenous Governance Awards.
Jason is currently a Board member of the GO Foundation, the Foundation for Young Australians, ACON and First Nations Futures as well as being a member of the First Nations Advisory Council for the Art Gallery of NSW and on the advisory group for the Strengthening Civil Society project at the Sydney Policy Lab. While not formally qualified to do anything, Jason is deeply curious about everything and is currently trying to make sense of the last 30 years of ‘work’ and trying to be a better queer Wiradjuri disruptor and start-up founder.
