Synapse CEO Jennifer Cullen on the DSC ‘Disability Done Different’ Podcast
Jennifer sat down with the team at Disability Services Consulting (DSC) to yarn about being a proud Aboriginal woman and CEO of Synapse and how language, communication and co-design are vital to ensuring the inclusion of everyone in the disability sector.
Since joining the team in 2004, Jennifer has gained valuable wisdom by working with communities, building intergenerational knowledge into the Synapse team and following in the footsteps of trusted mentors and Elders. The conversation covers Jennifer’s background and work with Synapse and explores fascinating topics like the need for culturally appropriate NDIS services, Proper Way approaches to working alongside Indigenous communities and the NDIS’ ideological clash with the collectivist culture of many communities across Australia.
