In this compelling episode, we sit down with Zali Mifsud from Mifsud Consulting who  produces a thought provoking episode. Please note, this is a longer episode than usual because we believe this is such an important topic for all Australians so we decided to produce a longer than normal episode which captures this amazing discussion in full.

Our chat as an Australian labour hire company with one of the country's most prominent Indigenous affairs consulting businesses is a fascinating conversation which benefits employers looking to create a more inclusive and diverse workforce as well as employees wanting to discover more about indigenous perspectives in the workplace. People 2U believes that by exploring and understanding indigenous affairs, we can collectively build a better future of work that embraces cultural diversity and empowers Indigenous Australians.

With her deep knowledge and personal passion for Indigenous affairs and helping business understand their opportunities in this space, Zali provides various real life examples and tangible solutions which employers and employees can implement immediately.

Some of the questions answered by Zali included:

  • What should the everyday Australian know about Indigenous Australians? 
  • What is a first nations person looking for in a job?
