Event overview

Recent reports to inform good work include the Queensland Productivity Commission’s recommendations for substantial policy and service delivery reform in remote and discrete Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities. There are many other opportunities to rethink policy and mutual responsibility. With so many committed to improved social and economic outcomes, Dr Sarra will talk through what might need be done differently, with high expectations, for all.
