“Bringing culture into service delivery” by Muriel Bamblett

FSSI Director Micaela Cronin recently spoke to Muriel Bamblett CEO of the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency about her leadership experience and her reflections on the protests. Noting a striking similarity between George Floyd and the case of a young Aboriginal man who died after being held down by police, Muriel cautions that while these protests and the issues that spurred them are front page news today, there is a risk that they will soon be forgotten about by white Australians. They cannot be forgotten by Aboriginal people who are fighting against discrimination and injustice every day out of love for their community.

Through her leadership, Muriel provides an example of what can be achieved if you are deeply committed to working with others and bringing culture into service delivery.
