Now, Williams’ paragraph-come-definition is uncredited in the book (Culture,… Continue reading Cultural Safety Definition Debate – Intellectual Property and Copyright

It’s all glamorous and glitzy in the reports, in front of the cameras, and on the news.… Continue reading Closing the Gap Report 2021 – Cultural Safety = Reduced Racism in Government Services?
