Fallon believes it’s not only recruiting people to build a diverse and inclusive workforce, it’s the feedback, knowledge and inspiration that can be shared to better prepare and help people looking for work particularly those from under-represented groups.
A proud Narungga man, Fallon speaks fondly of his family heritage and of the strong, ambitious and positive people around him including his mum Tania, a linguist who is the sole fluent speaker and reviver of the once sleeping Narungga language. Tania has authored a dictionary, children’s education books in Narungga and English and works with local schools and the community, running workshops to help educate youths in the language.
Fallon recently visited the local school his brothers attend, Kadina Memorial, where he spoke to students about his journey from secondary school to where he is today. He hopes by sharing his experiences he’ll also be able to help others – a mindset instilled in him by his mum.
“If I can help just one person, that’s one person more than before,” he says.
