Aboriginal Employment and Engagement

Our Network is committed to increasing Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander participation in our workforce through our Aboriginal Action Plan and our Aboriginal Employment Strategy.

We recognise the disadvantage suffered by Aboriginal peoples within Australia and research which substantiates that Aboriginal people suffer lower outcomes relating to health, education and employment across Australia.

We are committed to reducing the gap and creating equity in the selection process to acknowledge such disadvantage. Our aim is to ensure that Aboriginal people including women, babies, children, young people their families and communities have the right to access health care services in a safe and nurturing environment where their culture, community, spiritual identity and traditional ownership of the land is supported and respected by the people who will care for them.

We know that having a workforce that is representative of our Aboriginal clients, patients their families and communities being is essential.

We stand by this commitment via actions taken aligned to our Aboriginal Health Plan (2018-2022) and our Aboriginal Workforce Strategy (2018-2022), these documents guide our work and enable us to continually strive for better outcomes for Aboriginal people, families and communities.
