The Catholic Commission for Employment Relations (CCER) is proud to welcome lawyer, academic and Aboriginal land rights activist Noel Pearson to deliver the biennial Bishop Manning Lecture. This event is supported by The University of Notre Dame Australia. There is no cost to attend.

The Bishop Manning Lecture was established by CCER to honour Parramatta Bishop Emeritus Kevin Manning’s commitment and contribution to the development of Catholic workplaces as places of justice and human dignity.

For the third Bishop Manning Lecture, Noel will speak on the complex range of factors that have contributed to the current and future prospects of Indigenous communities across Australia. He has been called the outstanding Aboriginal leader of the modern era. His policies have faced criticism and celebration in equal measure.

Noel is a member of the Guugu Yimidhirr community of Hopevale on South Eastern Cape York Peninsula, Noel studied Law and History at the University of Sydney, and was involved in the establishment of the Cape York Land Council, Cape York Partnerships, Apunipima Cape York Health Council and Balkanu Development Corporation.

He is Chair of the Cape York Group and Director of the Cape York Institute for Policy and Leadership, a body that drives new directions in public policy on Indigenous issues working closely with the Queensland and Commonwealth governments.
