Tanya Denning-Orman is a proud Birri and Guugu Yimidhirr woman and Director of Indigenous Content at SBS, while Steven Issa is Lord Mayor of Paramatta City Council. Both join the Harbour Trust as Members of the Trust for a two-year period.
The new appointees have been welcomed by Minister for the Environment, the Hon. Sussan Ley MP. She said that to plan for the future of the Harbour Trust’s former defence sites, it was important to have Members of the Trust who bring together the right diversity of skillsets.
“Tanya brings a wealth of communications and broadcast experience to the Board and a strong understanding of indigenous storytelling,” Minister Ley said.
“Steven’s appointment reflects the importance of local government perspectives in Heritage planning and place making.
“This is a unique time of opportunity for the Harbour Trust as it undertakes long-term master planning for Cockatoo Island and North Head Sanctuary, and it is important the right mix of Board and Management experience is in place to deliver the best possible outcomes.”
