Bridget Brennan

Indigenous Affairs Editor, ABC

Bridget Brennan is the Indigenous Affairs Editor at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and has been working with the national broadcaster for more than a decade. She was the first Indigenous journalist to be appointed a foreign correspondent for the ABC. She has worked as a reporter in Asia, Europe and the United States, but it's her time covering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia which is most important to her.

Recently Bridget has been investigating the crisis of missing and murdered First Nations women in Australia, uncovering that hundreds of cases have received little attention. In 2017, Bridget anchored the historic constitutional convention in central Australia, a process which led to the Uluṟu Statement from the Heart, a call to action that will now lead to a referendum on a voice for Australia's First Peoples. She is a Yorta Yorta and Dja Dja Wurrung woman.
