Racism can also intersect with other forms of discrimination based on religion, colour, descent, sexuality, gender or national or ethnic origin and commit to supporting all communities to the extent of our influence in eradicating discrimination. We also commit to challenging racist views in our publications and postings and the practices and policies these ideas inform.
Our commitment to the First Nations peoples of Australia
We acknowledge the history and legacies of racism and ongoing injustices experienced by the First Nations peoples of Australia.
We recognise that it is important to listen, learn from and respect Indigenous knowledges, and to embed these within our policies and practices.
Truth-telling and acknowledging Australia’s past
To address the impact of racist ideas and practices and shape future teaching and research, we are committed to processes of truth-telling. It is vital that we understand Australia’s past and the benefits it affords us to better inform and de-colonise the future Australia.
