THE MEDIA RING ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAITS ISLANDER EMPLOYMENT STRATEGY 2012-2014
In March 2011, the Media RING (Reconciliation Industry Network Group) was contracted by the Department of Education, Employment and Work Relations (DEEWR) to develop an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Strategy. Screen Australia, as the Federal Government’s primary funding agency for the Australian screen production industry, and a member of Media RING, has been invited to undertake the practical implementation of the Strategy by implementing a two year employment program. It will enter an agreement with DEEWR to act as host agency for the Strategy in close liaison with Media RING.
The Employment program was launched in Canberra on August 22, 2012.
