Lessons for the public sector

Use NAIDOC Week 2020 event as an opportunity to learn about some of the achievements that have come from the public sector and Aboriginal community leadership working together and the lessons these achievements offer about the design and delivery of public sector services.



ABOUT THIS EVENT  

In the daily deluge of news you may have missed two recent important stories of success: 

  • The 2020 Closing The Gap report noted the rate of Aboriginal students completing Y12 in NSW has increased by more than 20 percentage points since 2008 and that the gap between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Year 12 completion rates in NSW, whilst still significant, is smaller than it has ever been.  

  • Aboriginal community leadership has been pivotal in preventing the spread of COVID 19 across NSW and in particular in some of most vulnerable communities. 

What can we learn from these success stories as we look towards 2021 and what can they teach us about service design and delivery more generally?

This event will also explore the personal challenges for Aboriginal people working in the public sector and with communities in pursuit of long-term social change, as well as providing examples of the public sector proactively developing Aboriginal economic prosperity during COVID-19. 

 
WHAT WILL I GAIN?

This event will explore the success factors behind these success stories and the general lessons they teach us about improving the design and delivery of public sector services for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities.

Understanding these lessons is important for everyone working in the public sector and will be crucial in meeting the education, health and customer service targets set by the Premier’s Priorities.

 

 
HOW WILL I LEARN?

This will be a live online Zoom discussion with at least 25% of the time allocated for Q&A.
