Update, Issue 88, Winter 2019: Cultural competency: Working together with Aboriginal &/or Torres Strait Islander peoples & communities

25 June 2019

ACTCOSS has for the past few years dedicated our winter journal to a topic relevant to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander affairs. Our goals are to promote sharing of knowledge, encourage reflection on the responsibilities of people who live in Australia who do not identify and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and facilitate professional growth of people working in the community sector.
