By the time you all read this post, the launch event of the 2013-2018 Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Employment Strategy will have taken place. All the hard work that has gone into developing this strategy has been completed and I want to thank UNE for their support; and in particular my direct supervisor Clare Drew for the support and guidance she has given me in the development of this important document.
Please know that just because the strategy has been developed that does not mean that the hard work will cease, I believe the hard work has only just begun. If you have not had look at the strategy yet please go to my previous post and download the PDF version of it and you will see how we are working to embed the aims of the strategy across the entire institution.
I am looking forward to the next 5 years; it will no doubt be a challenge but I feel that our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities have a great opportunity to capitalize on the strong commitment shown at all levels of the University of New England.
Until next time, take care of yourselves, each other and your community
