Statement of Support
PRAXIS Australia is committed to supporting our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander friends, colleagues, and communities across Australia, and stand proudly alongside, as we together recognise the harms done over the last 232 years. As an organisation dedicated to excellence in research and research ethics, we recognise that we must be inclusive in the conceptualisation, design, conduct and reporting of research. We commit to work with agencies and organisations that represent our diverse cultural, gender and racial landscape to ensure these voices are amplified, and that respect, recognition, inclusion and equality are critical foundations for all research conducted across Australia. Not just for today. Not just for tomorrow. But for the future.
