Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!

NAIDOC week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Here's some of our fantastic highlights from the week!

We were thrilled to attend the National NAIDOC Awards Ceremony on Narrm.

Congratulations to the winners!

Poche Board member Janine Coombs received the the 2022 NAIDOC Strong Sista Award from Indigenous Employment Partners, an Aboriginal owned and operated social enterprise whose mission is to find Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people employment.

The Wurru Wurru Health Unit for the Department of Medical Education had its official launch!

And we joined the NAIDOC March in Melbourne with Murrup Barak and the Uni Melb MDHS community!

While we know that every week is a great week to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander achievements, this week was an especially great one!
