National Talkblack 130723

We had:

Andrew Staite, CEO and MD at Pinnacle, talking about the barriers faced by Indigenous LGBTQIA+ youth in education & careers. 40% of Aussies believe there are more barriers for First Nations LGBTQIA+ people to get into tertiary education and 46% believe it’s harder for First Nations queer people to get into corporate careers.

Graham Perrett, Author and Member for Moreton, talking about his new book “The Long Story” which explores Australia’s history of inter-racial relations. With conversations surrounding the Indigenous voice to parliament a salient issue, understanding Australia’s historical relationship with race sheds light on current issues.
