Sorry Business

The Art of Inclusion. Episode 1: Sorry Business: Death in Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Communities

With higher death, suicide and infant mortality rates than their non-Indigenous counterparts, death is a constant companion for Indigenous Australians.

In this episode of The Art of Inclusion we explore 'Sorry Business' - the cultural protocols for death in Indigenous communities – and how workplaces can better understand and support this practice. 

Mundanara Bayles of The Black Card is both storyteller and expert.
