Please register here to access the recording of AMT's webinar 'Becoming better allies', presented by Dr Summer May Finlay on 4 July 2023.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a long history in the lands now known as Australia pre and post colonisation. However, it is not well understood what that history means and how it impacts Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people today. Through the lens of NAIDOC week and the theme "For Our Elders", this webinar will outline the history, what it means and how non-Indigenous people can work towards being better allies in their personal and professional lives.
The online format will include opportunities to ask questions regarding the content presented.
