Listen in as Catherine takes us on a journey of her experience as a First Nations’ woman striving for better care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children who have experienced trauma.
For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, cultural connection, positive self-identity, and a sense of belonging within family and community are the bedrock of health and wellbeing.
If we are to improve outcomes, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and perspectives must be at the heart of systems that impact children.
This week’s guest Catherine Liddle is an Arrernte/Luritja woman from Central Australia, with a strong background in senior management positions with First Nations organisations. Catherine has also held senior roles within the Northern Territory Education Department, the ABC, and NITV (or SBS).
As a journalist by trade, Catherine’s motivation has always been to drive change that leads to positive outcomes and options for First Nations people. Over the past 10 years she has led multidisciplinary teams, overseen workplace transformations, and advocated for policy reform.
