The First Peoples Employment strategy develops equitable employment and career development opportunities for Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people at Griffith University.
First Peoples Staff Yarning Circle
The Griffith University Staff Yarning Circle seeks to provide a culturally supportive environment where members can share information, experiences, advice, provide support, and promote cultural awareness through activities and events. The Yarning Circle enables staff to come together four times per year, with full support from their workplace, to discuss any concerns regarding their employment and share information and ideas.
Celebrating First Peoples
Each year, the University acknowledges and celebrates significant dates within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
NAIDOC & National Sorry Day
Griffith's NAIDOC Week celebrations are opened each year at Nathan campus on the first Monday in July. The University also acknowledges the anniversary of the first National Sorry Day and the spirit of Reconciliation Week through Walk N Talk Events which bring together staff and students, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, in a spirit of reconciliation.
