Carla Rogers

Evolve Communities builds understanding and collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. Co-founded by Carla and Aunty Munya Andrews, Evolve aims to create a kinder, more inclusive society through education and engagement.

Evolve provides cultural awareness training that isn't just about ticking boxes. They're committed to making real connections—helping people and organisations learn about and deeply appreciate Indigenous cultures and embrace these rich cultures as part of life and business practices.

Their programs equip people with the knowledge and skills to act as informed allies. This means understanding the history, struggles, and ongoing contributions of Indigenous communities, and using this understanding to foster genuine partnerships.

Education is the key to change. By educating non-Indigenous people about the true history and vibrant cultures of Indigenous Australians, they aim to dismantle stereotypes, combat prejudice, and encourage actions that support reconciliation.

It’s about more than just knowing—it’s about understanding, respecting, and walking together toward a shared future. This vision of allyship and reconciliation drives every workshop, seminar, and program they offer, making a profound impact on communities across Australia.

Carla’s unique perspective and journey learning how to be an non-Indigneous ally make her a pivotal voice in discussions around reconciliation. Her work, especially in creating programs that educate and inspire action among non-Indigenous Australians, highlights effective strategies for reducing the cultural load on Indigenous communities.

Suggested topics:

  1. Role of non-indigenous allies in reconciliation: what everyday Aussies can do - suggestions on how to be an ally and friend to Indigenous people.

  2. How to share the cultural load: explaining what this means, and tips on how to share the load and why it’s important.

  3. Carla's personal journey as an ally: Carla’s experiences and lessons learned in her ongoing journey to support and uplift Indigenous voices.

  4. Visions for reconciliation: the evolving landscape of reconciliation and the steps needed moving forward.




Key Facts:

Based in Sydney, Carla is available for interviews, including appearances on television, radio, podcasts, and features in print and online publications.
