The aim of the survey is to understand what it’s like to work in a mainstream organisation from the perspective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees. To this end, your feedback would make a valuable contribution. 

The information obtained will be used for developing a resource that Women's Health West and other mainstream organisations can use to understand and improve the experiences and the retention rate of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees in mainstream organisations.

By completing this survey, you can go into a draw to win a $100 Coles Group gift card.
