NAIDOC Week 2022 is from 3 – 10 July and the theme for this year is Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!
This year’s theme encourages Australians to focus on moving beyond acknowledgement, good intentions, empty words and promises, and hollow commitments. Real change requires action.
Getting up, standing up and showing up can take many forms, whether it be working to secure institutional, structural, collaborative and cooperative reforms or celebrating those who have driven and led change. Check out the winner profiles of previous National NAIDOC Awards recipients for inspiration on how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have empowered their communities, promoted Indigenous issues and demonstrated excellence in their chosen fields.
You can also learn more about Griffith’s own commitment to reconciliation as well as other initiatives including:
- dedicated support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, from recruitment and orientation to graduation, through GUMURRII Student Success Unit
- scholarships for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
- the development and support of Indigenous research and researchers, through the Indigenous Research Unit
- and employment opportunities, through the First Peoples Employment Talent Pool.
