Launch of CATSINaM Connect
A Message from CATSINaM CEO Professor Roianne West
I am excited to announce the launch of our community platform, CATSINaM Connect! This is a place to connect, network,
encourage and empower each other to continue our journeys in nursing and/or Midwifery in a culturally safe and private forum. Connect, Network, Encourage and Empower were key elements that members sought from CATSINaM. We have listened and have created this community platform which meets all those elements and also ensure we realise our vision “Unity and Strength Through Caring”
Over the coming months we will develop a range of smaller communities that encapsulates the cultural, professional, personal interest of our members.
Over the last few weeks 30 CATSINaM members volunteered their time to help us test the site and develop content. We look forward to your feedback and suggestions on how we can further improve your CATSINaM Connect.
National Reconciliation Week 2021
Reconciliation Australia’s theme for 2021, More than a word. Reconciliation takes action, urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.
To our new supporters, please remember the importance of privileging and amplifying First Nations’ voices as you add your voice to calls for reconciliation and justice.
Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and importantly as a nation. At the heart of this journey are relationships between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures, and futures
2021 marks twenty years of Reconciliation Australia and almost three decades of Australia’s formal reconciliation process.
