Ms Hume has been a strong advocate and supporter of the EON Foundation for a number of years and will officially take up her appointment on 12 March 2018.
Ms Hume is the Senior HR Aboriginal Employment Consultant with Chevron Australia and has actively supported the EON Foundation, raising awareness and over $15,000 through her participation (and Chevron’s dollar-matching approach to employee fund raising) in the Chevron City to Surf sporting event.
“Rishelle’s professional and philanthropic life and achievements are a model for us all,” EON Chair, Caroline de Mori said. “Her support and advocacy for the EON Thriving Communities Program in remote communities and accepting a role as our inaugural Ambassador will contribute a great deal to our organisation.”
