Have you ever considered working with a local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community or for a community organisation?

Did you know that about 80% of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples live in capital cities or regional centres?

If you are not from the community, how do you effectively contribute and what approaches are useful for appropriately engaging with Elders and community? In this Panel, hear from panellists on the value and impact of working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to develop an enriched understanding of positively contributing to local organisations. 

This session will be facilitated by Megan Gaynor, Project Officer (Indigenous Engagement Initiatives) from the Office of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous Engagement) at UQ.  Panellists will include: 

  • Mary Waria, Administration Officer – Indigenous Researcher Development, UQ 
  • Chris Levinge, Manager, Indigenous Employment, UQ.
