Good leadership is critical in the pursuit of change. In this talk on Political Co-existence in Australia in the 21st Century, Josephine Bourne will talk about the areas of work Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisation leaders have identified as priority areas in her research.
Central to the social and cultural areas identified for greater investment is the work of truth telling. Josephine will talk about why truth telling is important for all Australians. She will also talk about the need to invest in inter-generational dialogues for two main reasons. The first is to grow an appreciation for activism, protest, and resistance (in all forms) amongst a generation that are beneficiaries of the change work done by previous generations. The second reason is to harness the talent and skills of the younger generations to carry out the work in front of us.
