The lecture, held on Wednesday 20 May 2015, was co-hosted by Notre Dame, the Kimberley Development Commission and GGSA. Mr Pearson has spent decades advancing reform on native title, economic development and social policy for his people in Cape York Peninsula.
He is Chairman of Good to Great Schools Australia and Cape York Partnership. He intends to devote the next decade of his working life to education reform and is working closely with government and business to form partnerships to advance education opportunities for Australian children.
