Introducing Series 5: Workers Advice - responses from ally

Updated: May 26, 2020

For all professionals who work with Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander staff, colleagues, clients and communities, in order to address health and socioeconomic disadvantages, they need to acknowledge that they have a significant role to play in reducing the continuing inequalities experienced by many Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders people today. The need for more culturally-responsive practices has been well recognised and documented, and is a key objective in many industries & professions such as health, education, employment, child protection & juvenile justice settings, and vocational training. This series of film clips describe the views of allies of Aboriginal

people about the knowledge, skills and attributes that all workers (such as health professionals, educators, teachers) need to possess for effective work with Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander clients).
