This week is NAIDOC Week and the theme is “Blak, Loud and Proud” to celebrate the unyielding spirit of First Nation’s communities and invite all to stand in solidarity, amplifying the voices that have long been silenced. NAIDOC Week is about celebrating and recognising the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Closing the Gap

Many of the industries we work with are responsible for caring for Australia’s land, sea, flora and fauna – something that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities have been developing skills and knowledge about for thousands of years.

In our work as a JSC, we aim to support employment opportunities, facilitate access to education and training, and foster economic participation for First Nations communities. We want to identify and address systemic and entrenched inequality, or influence change.

Closing the Gap is an ongoing priority for Skills Insight as a Jobs and Skills Council. We are keen to explore and support initiatives that are First Nations led. We are here to work collaboratively and listen to the voices and aspirations of First Nations people.
